The wind of hot pigbirdman breath and other capitalist chimeras

Every time I hear of avian swine flu, I can only envision some diabolical version of the above, the ferocious beast, symptom and product of a world stuck waiting at the ATM line for cash that won't come. On a more critical note, Mike Davis on the "CDC-WHO-KFC-AIG pork sewer ponzi complex" (as described by Retort) at the Socialist Worker.

This is not a "black swan" flapping its wings. Indeed, the central paradox of this swine
flu panic is that while totally unexpected, it was accurately predicted.
