The Swine Flu has apparently made it to Milwaukee. The local news was all a-twitter (pun intended) with the two “probable” cases of it here. Four schools have been closed as a result. Yes, this is serious but it seems like the local news channels are giddy with excitement about the fact that it’s happening RIGHT HERE. They don’t have to try to figure out a local angle to this story. That’s what’s always to frustrating to me about the local news stations — whatever the big story, they try to find a local tie-in and it’s usually ridiculous. Unfortunately this time there’s no local angle needed. The news is actually happening right here. I just hope for everyone’s sake that this outbreak doesn’t turn into a pandemic.
The Daily Krier is running commentary on what's happening in my life on a regular basis. I write about things that interest me -- my family, my hobbies, my career in marketing. The blog was born from my interest in writing, my need to become more involved in all things related to social media, and my desire to start on my personal brand. The blog title is a play on my last name. It's technically pronounced "kreer" but everyone pronounces it as "cry-er". The mis-pronounciation lends itself extremely well to the title, don't you think?
