A First For Everything

Well, Tropical Storm Alpha is whirling its way around the Carribean. This marks the first time all official hurricane names have been used and forecasters have been forced to go to the Greek alphabet for names.

More firsts include Britain's first case of bird flu (but they are quick to say that it was from an imported South American parrot (damn that Prince Harry for having to have such an authentic pirate costume for Halloween); Sweden's first case and the first signs of bird flu in Canadian birds. At this rate, poor Chicken Little will be slaughtered long before he can tell everyone the sky is falling (although the media is doing a good job of instilling such panic over the whole bird flu thing). I wonder if there'll be any turkeys left for Christmas.
