    Meme spread by mathematical models that look exactly like epidemics. We have a potential pandemic (world wide epidemic) going right now. I thought you might be interested in the shape of the curve to date.

    Of course there are many memes associated with this business, including those which spread panic among the population. We have already seen massive disruptions of the travel industry.

    I hope not, but this could be a year where the war in Iraq is a relatively minor footnote.
