Pope Burial Hides Ebola and Bird Flu

The God of Thunder reminds us that while we're sitting on our butts watching news about the Pope, Michael Jackson, and Tom Delay, there are more important events occuring around the globe that somebody doesn't want us to know about.

Ebola Marburg Outbreak

LUANDA, March 29 (Reuters) - Angola's outbreak of deadly Marburg fever claimed three more lives at the weekend bringing the death toll to 117, but the government said on Tuesday the situation was under control and there was no need for panic.

So far 124 cases have been recorded, underscoring the lethal nature of Marburg, a virulent viral infection in the Ebola family for which there is no specific cure and from which few recover.

Avian Flu Outbreak in North Korea

SEOUL, April 8 (Reuters) - North Korea sought South Korea's help on Friday in combating a bird flu outbreak that has forced it to cull more than 210,000 chickens at two poultry farms in its capital, a South Korean ministry official said.

North Korea asked for equipment and medicine. It expressed gratitude for the South's offer of help, which was made shortly after Pyongyang announced the outbreak on March 27, the Unification Ministry said.

Brain Failure Outbreak at News Media HQs and Congress
Washington, DC (Phelps) - A curious epidemic is sweeping the upper offices of news media headquarters and the hallowed halls of national government: their brains are disappearing. While the news media is filling broadcast hours with the latest reports about the Pope being laid to rest and the US Congress is more interested in steroid use in pro baseball, other important news stories are falling by the wayside.

Avoid all contact with the media. Their disease is far deadlier than either Bird Flu or Marburg.
