Just maybe it is the training to do everything in a team. Schools need to teach individual responsibility instead of communal activities. Perhaps learning at home might be a better idea.

Whatever the real situation is regarding the flu this year we are being left out in the dark. Hundreds in this town were recently suffering from some illness that was termed "upper respiratory illness" by physicians who insisted it was not the flu. But similar illnesses were reported all across the region and the official response was always "it's not the flu." The healthcare industry and the public health organizations are either unable (incompetent) to identify the cause or they felt that telling us the truth would cause a panic.

But whatever the truth is we will likely never know. Or if it the facts of this 'epidemic' are ever reported it will be after we have all forgotten about it.

We have military and other government functions due to MS taking government money. They are always experimenting on the public or polluting as they are exempt from federal law and have the most super fund sites that need to be cleaned up.
