Schaffner was the hospital epidemiologist at Vanderbilt University Hospital for nearly 30 years, so we can only assume he knows a thing or two about contagious diseases. And for those of our readers who feel NPR is just a cog in the vast left-wing conspiracy to turn our nation into a bastion of Volvo-driving, Obama-loving socialists, you can rest assured that the broadcast is 100 percent free of any references to global warming, racial diversity, reparations or arugula. And please don't take the term "swine" personally.
