Super Bug

And yet another story about killer microscopic organisms.
This one comes on the heels of yesterday's news about the killer fungus.
This time it's bacteria,
which we all new were bad anyway, but this ones seems to have been a simple strain that was never a problem until recently.

Scientists have been warning us for some time that using antibacterial soap was not helping the situation in warding off the critters, but was in fact helping to breed these antibiotic-resistant strains we're now fighting.

As a result, we now have a strain of staphylococcus that is killing more people than AIDS in the U.S.

Maybe George Carlin was right....
