Swine Flu: Now at a Camp Near You

What with the whole Iran election debacle, the world financial crisis, and the new season of Weeds, we've all but forgotten about the Swine Flu.

Turns out, unlike a bad political pundit, you can't make it go away just by ignoring it. In fact, not only has it hit Missouri, after this week's Camp Sabra closing, its headed right here to St. Louis

The Camp, run by the St. Louis Jewish Community Center, is closing down after two of its participants were found to have contracted Swine Flu.

The camp, out at Lake of the Ozarks is a popular place for Jewish kids from the area and will send all 350 kids home until June 30th.

The obvious irony in Jewish kids catching the Swine Flu wouldn't be worth mentioning, had the Minister of Health in Israel not referred to it as the Mexican Flu because of the unkosher origins of the virus.

We wish everyone a speedy recovery and hope it doesn't get in the way of your summer fun.
