Pandemic, or business opportunity?

I can’t help but shake my head and chuckle when an e-mail like this lands in my basket:

Subject: "Survive the Swine with Belli Skincare" 

Text: "With updates about the Swine Flu everywhere you look you maybe wondering what you can do now to help prevent yourself from being affected. Belli Skincare … has a Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer that can help you get through the day worry and most important germ free."

Bad grammar and utterly opportunistic. Quite a combination.

For those seeking a Swine Flu update, check out, or my colleague Jim Hall’s blog.

For those seeking a little perspective on this latest medical scare, see my post below. (and murphy22, thanks for your note about that).
