You Have Got to be Kidding Me

Closing an entire elementary school for a week because someone feels "mild flu symptoms" is ridiculous. And apparently it is one of 7 schools.

Do they close school during regular flu season? No. Do they close school for chicken pox? No. Do they close schools for any disease that is infrequently deadly and happens every year? No.

They don't even teach safe sex in high schools, which will result in millions of new AIDS cases every year, and the constant spread of the far deadlier disease.

Really, learn priorities. It's not hard.

I must agree. The swine flu is a bad strain of influenza, but the panic has gotten out of hand.

Schools are closing IMO because they don't want to be held accountable incase someone gets sick. People did not take into account the economic affect this would have on the parents who would have to take off of work.
