Those who follow City Hall — or maybe just us, whatever — were astounded and a bit perplexed Tuesday evening after coming across the following item in the San Francisco Sentinel:
“SAN FRANCISCO SUPERVISOR CHRIS DALY SAYS HE MAY HAVE SWINE FLU”
Which would be troublesome if we were sharing microphones or floorspace on Tuesday with the Supervisor, who in our opinion sounded cogent and not necessarily deathly ill on the floor of the Board of Supervisors chamber.
In the item, a “sweat-beaded brow”‘d Daly was quoted as saying, “I have the flu and I may have swine flu.” The link is here.
To be fair, Daly tells us all sorts of shit from time to time, too, but this latest one gave us pause. After all, aren’t we the media, and aren’t we supposed to be alarmist when it comes to the evil awful H1N1?
We contacted the supervisor via text message late Tuesday. He replied, “You guys should get a hobby. Me? I’m going back to bed.”
Maybe so, but if you feel woozy this week, you know who to blame, San Francisco.
