I guess they didn't go to SARSstock

I had an appointment today (Thursday) to give blood. I'm type O+, and there's a blood emergency going on here. Did I give blood? No. They turned me away.

Why? Because I'd been to Toronto in the last month. Which, according to the American Fucking Red Cross, means that I'm a risk for SARS. Given my probable travel schedule, I'll pretty much never qualify to give them my urgently-needed and entirely safe blood, until they finally clue in and either take Toronto off the SARS list or get rid of it entirely.

BTW, Indians-Blue Jays this weekend, anyone?
