Being Politically Correct

Only the government could come up with this stuff. Aren't we all glad our government is getting bigger and bigger? Lots of material for bloggers like me. Today some federal department asked us to quit referring to this outbreak as "Swine Flu". They want it called by the viral strain's name, which I can't remember. The thinking is, calling it swine flu will give pigs a bad name. It would be bad for pork sales.
Okay, since I can't remember the new name can I call it "The Flu Formerly Known as Swine Flu?". I am from Minnesota, land of the purple one.
