Mexico Subway Flu Ice

Just testing a theory.

Yahoo! News, Don’t say ‘flu’ or ‘subway’ online if you want to avoid Homeland Security

The list of words used by [Homeland Security] to monitor online activity for signs of terrorism or threats against the U.S. has been made publicly available. There are plenty of words on the list that you would expect to see there, like "Al Qaida" and "dirty bomb," but it's the inclusion of seemingly mundane terms like "bacteria" and "Mexico" that has piqued the interest of some.
