"Spanish flu" is surely a misnomer as the virus did not originate there. It is still unclear where but it was not in Spain.
Probably in the US at a military base. It was known as Spanish flu because the Spanish press were the only ones talking about it.

Re: The CCP is literally coming apart at its political seams

Re: my pessimism about China

Doc, Western leftists like Sertorio and Neverfail appear to believe whatever the CCP says and hate to think that the CCP, whose ideology they sympathize with, is coming apart at its seams.
