"University of St. Thomas psychology professor John Tauer said while the swine flu is dangerous, we likely fear it more than we need to.

"Maybe so but news that one of America's iconic corporations is forced to file for bankruptcy, can't be good.   Dr. David Vang chairs the finance department at the University of St. Thomas. 'If you look at airlines, they go through this every couple of years, it seems almost to be built into their business plans that they go bankrupt,' said Vang.
