Operation Shutdown

Thoughts on my alma mater's flu epidemic.

Out of the 300 students (out of 1,080 total) who called in sick to Blanchet High School yesterday, I'm sure about 200 are actually really, really ill -- and I feel for them. Cancelling a couple days of school for recuperative purposes is a very good decision. But having attended the Pope's favorite Greenlake institution, I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that once word spread that the school's "epidemic" was approaching shutdown level, nagging coughs were quickly elevated to walking pneumonia among students with sub-3.0 GPA's. Just a hunch, folks, but an informed one at that.
