Turkey Day has come and gone--no bird flu
One would think that the bird flu would have caused less turkey's to be purchased this year, however from the talk I've heard I have to meet anyone that didn't have turkey for Thanksgiving, not to mention not one that came down with the bird flu. It is amazing how everything seems to tie into economics. If people spend less money than they would have by purchasing chicken (or maybe spam...come to think of it maybe not) then that puts less money in the economy. If an influenza scare can cause people to spend less then various aspects of the whole economic system may change. As for me I stuffed to the rafters and still working on those leftovers.
