The days of swine and noses

An excerpt from a Talking Points Memo post about swine flu data, regarding the news that many of the deaths attributed to swine flu in Mexico probably weren't caused by swine flu after all:

Dealing with statistics in a climate such as this is a tricky business because you don't want to inspire panic or sow complacency.

Because as we all know, there's nothing more dangerous than a complacent sow. The complacent ones don't cover their mouths when they cough.
