The transcript of our interview today is here. The open from columnist-to-the-world Steyn:

[W]e’re, historically speaking, we’re overdue for one of these killer flues, not necessarily something on the scale of 1918, but certainly a big, global pandemic. And of course, what’s changed since 1918 is we’re now in the era of mass transportation, where people go from one end of the world to another. If you remember the SARS, the little SARS epidemic thing from five years ago, five or six years ago, that basically leapt across the planet very fast, from rural China, somebody went up and stayed in a fancy hotel in Hong Kong, infected everybody, I think, in the elevator and the bathroom, public bathrooms of that hotel, and they all then flew on, brought it to Toronto and killed a big, whole mass of people in Toronto. So I think if this thing does get around that fast, then we are looking at potentially something very serious.
