Just to add to our scary reporting on the rapid spread of

all sorts of horrible illnesses. More and more states are reporting being

inundated with flu victims. It's bad, and getting worse this year. We've also

vaccine. In Boston, 18 are dead from flu. Molly Line reporting.

Thirty," and "Argo" among others expected to get nods.
