Despite swine flu fears, E3 progressing as planned


Thanks to our chemical inability to modulate our level of fear, we've been in an utter, blind panic since the first time we heard "swine flu" mentioned. The ESA is a lot calmer than us, though, saying that planning for E3, which packs people from every continent into a single building like international sardines, continues without a hitch, despite travel warnings.

"The 2009 E3 Expo is progressing as planned. Public health officials are taking all appropriate steps and we continue to follow their direction on all measures," said ESA spokesman Dan Hewitt. "We look forward to a great event, and to seeing you in Los Angeles in June."

That's fine, Dan, be the very picture of calm. We're going to continue lining our windows with plastic wrap, if it's all the same to you.
