I remember it well. I also remember that it was a lot of noise. I remember being able to turn on the news at 6am and again at 6pm and again at 10 pm to hear about the "4 new cases" only to find out they were still talking about the "4 new cases" from the day before.......
I wasn't too worried.
I wasn't worried about Y2K
I wasn't worried about SARS
I wasn't worried about West Nile
I'm not worried about Bird Flu either.
I'm more likely to be killed by a drunk driver on my way home from work than any of that stuff.
