The general consensus of news items I've read seem to say that the lethal strain hasn't reached the United States yet, but that it will. The director of the CDC says that people will die with swine flu in the United States, and there's no way to contain it.

We'll continue to post updates here as there are significant developments.

UPDATE: Number and severity of Swine Flu cases in US to increase. Federal government will issue a travel advisory today declaring that Americans avoid non-essential travel to Mexico. Mercury News


An enemy of my enemy is not my friend.

William Murtaugh for some reason thought that the revelations about Josh Melton meant that he had been exonerated for all the shit he's done in the past several years.

Not so fast, Murdiot.

Murt and monoxide are two peas in the same pod. Monoxide could learn a lot from Murt, as Murt has perfected his scam to the point that he doesn't have to work, and his pity stories always seem to result in women funneling the money to him.

From what I'm getting in my email in-box, Murt's most recent solicitation has something to do with shipping a server by freight. I don't understand the whole story, so anyone who knows what's going on feel free to comment.

I hadn't thought about Murt until he started appearing on my blog, commenting in his usual retarded way. Then I got several e-mails telling me that Murt is stealing my content and posting it as his own at his retardoblog.

One thing that pissed off a lot of people who used to follow Murt is that he let his chat room be used by a sex offender's sister to call the child witnesses liars. He let Tinker Bell go on a rant about the children who testified about her sister's inappropriate sexual conduct. For those of you who don't know about this, Tinker Bell is or was a mod at Murt's chat room. A couple months ago, her sister Wind Chime, a slovenly mod at Websleuths, was outted as having a criminal record for sexually abusing children. The case records state that she crawled her obese self up on a table, lay on her back, and spread her fat labia for the children to see. She also had sex in front of the kids. She pleaded GUILTY to these charges! In Murt's chat, Tinker Bell defended Wind Chime at the expense of the children who were victimized by Wind Chime. Murt, who supposedly cares about children, sure didn't care about them when he let the sex offender's sister call those kids liars in his chat room. Anyone who stayed in Murt's chat after that happened can't even pretend to care about children.

Murt's always given me the creepy vibe, though. So it's not surprising that sex offenders and their kin gravitate toward his chat room.

Honestly, he's yesterday's news. But it looks like he's still up to the same monkey business.

Anyone know of any cons that old Murt's been up to lately? Tell us about them here.

Ladies, open your purses. Murt has a new idea. ($$$$$)

Murt decided to fix up his motor home and take his gig full-time on the road nationally to follow crime cases. While people in Orlando are used to his insanity, in other areas of the country he might get 5150'd or arrested for stalking.

Here's Murt's blog entry from a few minutes ago:

I had thought of using it as an office for my site sales but decided against it as it is a real pain to set up and keep moving around. Then came my decision that has determined a new turning point in attempting to continue my broadcasts. I have decided to FULL TIME with MURTHOME ONE AND MURTWITNESSONE.COM NEWS VAN. When and if I can get things set up, I will take to the road for extended trips of several months or so, following cases nationaly. In this way I will no longer be restricted to the State of Florida when doing my live broadcasts covering cases and other events that may be of interest. The one advantage of owning a turn key buisness is that I do not have to be there full time. If this project works out, I may be able to meet some of my roof riders in person.

(And Murt, since you're stealing my content and putting it on your blog as if you authored it, I don't think you'll mind me focusing on you for a day or two, asshole.)

World readies for deadly Swine Flu pandemic.

If you haven't been reading about this and keeping up-to-date on it, you really should. The Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 only killed 3% of those it infected. So far, the current strain of Swine Flu is killing close to 10% of people reported infected with it.

What is particularly worrisome about the current strain of Swine Flu is that it's a combination of hog, avian, and human virii never seen before.

It's fast acting, too. On April 16th, President Barack Obama visited a museum in Mexico. The archaeologist who hosted him died the next day from a pneumonia-like illness now suspected to be the flu.

As of 2:30 AM, April 26, the flu is spreading throughout Mexico, and has been identified in the United States in four states: California, Kansas, New York, and Texas. It has also been identified in New Zealand and the UK.

World Health Officials believe it could reach pandemic status, and they also say that there's no way to contain it, because it's already spread so far. At least one author is saying that the outbreak is related to bioterrorism. That seems unlikely though, until proven othewise.

Fortunately, the flu responds well to Tamiflu and Relenza.

The map below shows the locations of current or suspected Swine Flu cases. This blog will have at least one update daily on this topic.

Tricia Griffith pretends she didn't know about the email campaign to the victims conference.

Here's her post scolding her members.

To those who wish to vilify the Melanie Rieger Conference

I received a call from Marc Klaas today. It seems members of Websleuths have been sending some angry emails to a wonderful organization based on what Marc said on Nancy the other night. I asked Marc to put his concerns in writing for me to post. Below is from Marc to us.

What bothers me is it seems some members took it upon themselves to use Websleuths to organize an actual email campaign against Sam and Wanda Rieger.

First, any email campaign, any petition, any sort of organized anything, has to be approved by me. That has always been a hard and fast rule here.

Of course what you do off the forum is none of my business but when an organization like the Melanie Rieger Conference receives emails from people saying they are from Websleuths then it becomes my business.

If the people who did this would have followed the rules and contacted me we could have avoided this embarrassing situation.

This is a totally different situation that (sic) Oprah. Even so, when someone posted about an "email campaign" Jbean pulled that thread until I approved it. I made the mistake of not posting a reminder about organizing email campaigns.

Websleuths is a very different forum in that it is privately owned by one person. I take a very active role in setting the rules for Websleuths. I am blessed with a great team of moderators who share my goals and make sure the forum runs smoothly.

I will be sending a letter to everyone involved in the Melanie Rieger Conference explaining that this was not endorsed by Websleuths in any way.

I don't know how many people were involved in this but apparently it was enough people from Websleuths writing some very angry and unfair emails to prompt Marc to contact me.

What I have found is Websleuths is a very respected forum. That has everything to do with you as the poster. With posters like you who post within reason and without name calling. When something like this happens it hurts all of us.

I'll leave the thread open if anyone has any questions or would like to comment.



Wait. Did readers catch that? It was ok for her readers to send harassing emails to Oprah, but not ok for them to do it to others? Anyone who was ever a member of Websleuths knows that these kind of email campaigns happen all the time. And they are organized openly at Websleuths.

I think that the only reason Tricia admonished her members is because Mark Klaas called her and bitched her out about it.

Websleuths has been on the decline for a year at least. Tricia Griffith was in no way qualified to own such a web site. Her own blog reveals an unintelligent, nutty (in a bad way) person who can't even string two sentences together, much less admin a web site.

At one time Websleuths mattered. The Caylee case dropped a huge opportunity into Tricia's huge lap. She blew it through bad decision after bad decision. The Klaas letter will, we hope, deter reasonable people from joining the forum.

Of course, anyone with any sense of integrity has already left Websleuths. The fact that the forum was being co-admined by a woman who was convicted for showing her nether regions to innocent children was enough justification for any reasonable person to leave.

We wonder what is wrong with the people who stay. Obviously - as indicated by the Klaas bitchslap - there's not much of substance left there.

The emperess of Websleuths has no clothes and the few people who are left there don't have the cajones to tell her that.
