Bird Flu Found in Philadelphia

A Philadelphia live fowl market was closed Wednesday after discovery of bird flu in the inventory.

The press release from a department of agriculture hit the web via brief report from CattleNetwork.com. I am sure this site has never had so many hits from Philadelphia.

To be sure, the flu in question was not H5N1.

What's the Subcontext?

It will be interesting to see what comes of this storm in a tea kettle. If we see more than the tiniest of ripples, then we get some sense of the gale force winds and waves that will come from serious news about H5N1 in an American city.
