Asia and Its Infected Birds

Once again, we're hearing about some terrible strain of bird flu from Asia. What in the hell is up with Asia and its birds?

Every few months the world is suddenly in danger of dying from some new strain of bird flu in Asia. Are birds everywhere else just healthier? What is the deal? Why are Asian birds so deadly?

They're talking about a pandemic flu - meaning we don't have any protection from it, unlike various other flu strains.

And... of course... there's a shortage of the vaccine... well, there isn't even a vaccine... but they're talking about once they do get one, there won't be enough of it.

It seems we need to go to the source and deal with these birds... they seem to be a continual source of harm.

I'm expecting a Hitchcock cameo at any moment.
