    You are absolutely right about schools.

    Silly Rabbit schools arent for children. They’re for teachers, administrators, custodians and their unions – and critically the political support and donations that they can provide. The kids are barely an after thought.

    Yes. More and more governments are there to serve government employees, not citizens, or taxpayers, or children.

    You make the point that youthful illnesses are very few and many leaders play this down. This reminds me of AIDS where many leaders played up the threat of heterosexual transmission when in fact it was rare.

    With all news reports I read of the current disease, if the virus is detected, you have the disease. Back in the day with AIDS, the news reports carefully differentiated between people where the virus is detected, and people who had symptoms.

    This seems to be advancing political agendas. With both diseases, they want it to seem as serious as possible. But with AIDS, they did not want it to seem to be a homosexual VD.

    I am a teacher. Very sympathetic to the desire to have kids return to school, and support their return.

    As of this evening I am required to undertake a 14 day self-quarantine due to exposure to Covid at achool. I now have to teach my classes on Zoom.

    We are not even 3 weeks into school.

    Just saying.
