Lewis Black, The Center for Disease Control, and Valentine's Day

Image credit: - free image

It's February 14th, and that means it is Valentine's Day.  Reason enough for a shorter, more whimsical post. So I turned to Brainy Quotes.  No, this one is not dripping in sweet sentiments.  It's from Lewis Black.

"What I find most disturbing about Valentine's Day is, look, I get you have a have a holiday of love, but in the height of flu season, it makes no sense." - Lewis Black
And from that I will provide you with a link the the CDC's six recommendations on avoiding the flu:
  1. Avoid close contact;
  2. Stay home if you are sick;
  3. Cover your mouth and nose;
  4. Clean your hands;
  5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth; and
  6. Practice other healthy behavior (drink water, exercise, etc.)
Enjoy this day devoted to love, in the midst of flu season!  I'll be back tomorrow with more serious thoughts on illness, death and taxes for the middle class.
