Marketplace Scratch Pad

Should I wear a surgical mask?

Scott Jagow Apr 28, 2009

I’m heading off on vacation for the next few days. And yes, I will be flying. The travel industry is clearly worried about swine flu. I guess I’ll take the government’s approach and keep an eye out for sick-looking people.

I don’t know that I can hold my breath for an entire cross-country flight.

Anyway, while I’m gone, the blog will be in the very capable hands of Marketplace Senior Editor Paddy Hirsch of video Whiteboard fame.

Talk to you soon.
