    Thanks Denise for this post---but apparently the link is down or dead. On trying to connect using Windows media Player, the following is returned:

    "Windows Media Player cannot connect to the server. The server name might not be correct, the server might not be available, or your proxy settings might not be correct."

    (I can play all sorts of other Windows Media format files off the net.)

            In the last half of this speech, he stated:

            "As influenza is constantly changing into something different (affecting new species, developing new affinities, and new modes of causing mortality)--*every* pandemic is different from the ones preceeding it. To assume that the next one will be anything like 1918 is to flatly ignore this basic fact."
