Off the ice
Skaters stricken with swine flu?
There have been news reports that three Russians (performers and staff) who were in Japan for the Ice Jewelry show have come down with swine flu - no names have been released and it's not clear if anyone else has been infected. I hope not, and that those who are sick will have a speedy recovery!
