Sounds like a good time to get on a large cruise ship with 5-6 thousand of your closest friends? }};-@

Oh sure. Everyone loves a plague ship.

The rate of flu hospitalizations nearly doubled last week to 22.7 per 100,000 people compared with the previous seven days.

Federal authorities also disclosed that 20 children have died from the virus and 7% of senior deaths last month were to blame on this year's virulent strain.

Funny how the media always does it's best to sow hysteria about every year's flu season.
