Well, I am off to Vietnam for the next couple of weeks where I am going to try and avoid becoming a human carrier for avian flu. Some choice quotes from my doctor as I was getting some last minute prescriptions:
"Vietnam?!?! You couldn't pay me to go down there with all the shit that's coming from there" I believe that was a reference to avian flu, et al.
"Richard, remember, no hoochie coochie"
Off to Socialist Nirvana it is, Cheers!
