A Dose Of Common Sense

It's that time of year again ... flu shot season. This annual affair rivals such sporting happening such as the opening day of deer season and the first day of trout fishing. Although these comparisons may seem to have nothing in common, I'd beg to differ. Both anglers and elderly alike line the "aisles" of their respective territories for vast amounts of time, patiently waiting for that one moment of glory. Hunters and hypochondriacs will both become extremely hostile, without warning, when another person attempts to enter the "line" that has been staked out. I really can't decide where the epidemic lies ... with belligerent people that somehow became convinced overnight they are going to get the flu in the next few months, or the flu itself. After all, out of all the people you know ... how many that opted not to get immunized got the flu last year?
