school closings to stop the flu?

ok…just this one more, then i’ll stop.

So on the TV “news” last week, one of the stories was about school closings to try and stop the spread of the mild but dreaded swine flu. What do the brilliant parents arrange for the kids? PLAY DATES! Yes, yes, we get all the kids together in the park, or at someone’s house and have them all tumble around together, share food and drink out of the same cups. I don’t even want to think of all the tweens and teens prowling the malls and food courts.

stupid humans.

    I’ve always liked to think of myself as smarter than average, but these days, I’m starting to feel like a freakin’ genius.

    I saw that on the semi-local news, too. Although at least the reporter pointed out that they were pretty much defeating the purpose, which sort of surprised me.
