Tuna stockpiling

In some rather bizarre advice, Michael Leavitt recommended that Americans stock up on canned tuna, powdered milk, and other "essentials" against the possibility of a bird flu pandemic.

No need for me to do anything. Since my wife discovered Costco, our basement and both pantries are so stocked with provisions that you can barely open the door. I think we've got provisions enough to ride out the bird flu, Y2K, two hurricanes and a blackout sequentially.


The Missus sounds like a prudent woman. Disaster aside, stocking up on non-perishables that you know you will need eventually puts you ahead of inflation, especially when you take advantage of sales. (A survival tip learned in the bad old seventies. All hail Ronaldus Magnus!)
