Yes, 1t’s now the “H1N1” Flu, the Sw1ne word is too offens1ve for the Obama Adm1n1strat1on ?
Sorry, it’s my obsession with figuring out words on van1ty l1cense plates. That is, when when the numeral “1” can be used as an “i” or an “e” depending on the look, phonetic result at sounding it out or bad spellers who apply for these plates. Or a11, like me 🙂
According to Jake Tapper at ABC News :
Obama Administration: Out With the ‘Swine,’ In With the ‘H1N1 Virus’
April 29, 2009 8:25 AM
In the Oval Office last night as Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was sworn in, President Obama said, “we wanted to swear her in right away because we’ve got a significant public health challenge that requires her immediate attention, and that is the H1N1 flu outbreak.”
Well, yes. That’s the virus subtype the world is dealing with here.
Huh? Not “swine flu”?
There’s more. Unfortunately. Stay well, whatever you call it 🙂
