Gasp! Oh, No! Chicken Pox!

I got this from a Promed email today (https://mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-us/suite): from New South Wales, Australia, “the Maitland City Council has been made aware of a suspected case of chicken pox at Maitland Pool,” etc. And there’s also a suspicion of chicken pox in Louisiana and Venezuela.

Poor humanists. Carrying on over chicken pox like it was The Black Death. Gotta alert the city council! Government must act!

There weren’t many kids in my generation who didn’t get chicken pox. Big deal: a few days home from school. My little brother got it worse than I did, and had to get a baking soda bath. Then it went away.

It’s so much work, playing God–like, you have to do everything!
