    It is a virus we believe originated in China. Beyond that I think most people in the US are looking for reasons to be offended. I heard birds were offended by the Avian influenza, and small people are offended by small pox.
    Cool Hand Luke is offended by that.

    Only if you are looking for an excuse to be offended, in which case, anything can be offensive and f you believe it serves your political agenda.

    peace to you

    In addition the Spanish flu didn't originate in Spain. It came from the U.S.
