Mickey Mouse Versus the Chickens

This morning’s South China Morning Post carried stories about two major events: the smuggling of a Bird Flu diseased chicken into Hong Kong from China and Disneyland closing its gates on ticket holders.

Which do you think got the most coverage?

Disney, 4 plus a cartoon – Bird Flu, 2 plus an editorial. Mickey wins!

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Bird flu is only life threatening whereas problems at Disneyland threaten the economy.

I’ll be saying more about the bird flu problem in my next entry. Meanwhile, be secure in knowing that no humans have been infected.
