Due to the large increase of the African American population in Duluth.

Keith said shes convinced that her daughter, second-grader Sammi Keith, has gotten head lice at least eight times this school year at her school, Nettleton Elementary. She blames a revised procedure in the Duluth schools that allows children to remain in school even if they have lice.

I know shes getting it at school, Keith said.

It's a NEW NORM.

Head lice don't hurt anything. They are friendly little critters and smart people just consider them pets and even give each of them a name, like Head Buddy.

Reminds me of a story. A counter person at Maplewood City hall asked everyone to step back for a second. She then sanitized the entire area with bleach.

Turns out the black gentleman she waited on last had so many critters in his hair it was ear to ear moving. Maggots or lice who knows them are animals.

She was almost sick.

Remember they live amongst us.

Head lice are a healthy snack for the Knee Grows. That's why they are always picking at each others heads.

Head lice are the Africans contribution to the USA.
