Swines and handshakes

Filed under: Politics — jlebl @ 4:17 pm

Just got the following email (excerpt):

Because of ongoing concerns about the possibility of spreading the flu
virus, students receiving degrees and their families should not shake
hands at Commencement if they have symptoms of an upper respiratory
infection such as fever and cough.

This was sent through the official university channels.  And I thought the paranoia was over.  Not that I ever liked the whole commencement circus.  But we are getting ridiculous.  This makes we want to go there and cough on everyone (or at least pretend to cough, since it’s not happening by itself).
