i talked to my dad today, who is in his 80's. he is doing fine. a guy he knows died of the virus. the guy was 94. 94! my grandma died at 93. she fell and smashed her head and died. it was not unexpected. she was 93. i expected she would die like every day. and this is fairly common, old people fall and have brain damage and die alot. that doesnt mean we should close schools because college kids might fall down and smash their skulls. we have to understand that th things that kill old people are not risks for young people. the same way we dont need to remind folks in old folks homes not to drink and drive, but maybe we do at colleges. we need to be realistic about how old people face risks that dont apply to the rest of us.
