So, I'm back after a particularly nasty bout of bronchitis. I know where I caught it too. The woman sitting beside me on the crowded #4 train Friday Oct. 2. I would have moved away from her if there had been anywhere to go. That's the problem with public transport in New York at the moment; too much public and not enough transport.

Anyway, my doctor says there's no point in avoiding the subway to try and avoid swine flu. He says we're all going to get it anyway. Well that's comforting.

Actually, maybe if other people start avoiding the subway there'll be more more room for the rest of us!
