I just heard that St. Thomas Aquinas is shutting down for the rest of the week because it has been so hard hit by the flu and strep. My mother taught at my son’s elementary today and reports that “a lot” of students were out sick. I’m typing this from my dining room table because that same son has been confined to the house for four days, manfully struggling to vanquish the very same wee beasties from his spindly corpus.
Forget the economic crisis. The flu is coming to kill us all! Run for your lives!
