School discipline is thing of past

Q: Our son's fifth-grade teacher recently sent home notes to the effect that our little darling isn't paying attention and is missing homework assignments.

The flu - it's just a fever and cough, right? Wrong. Hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized because of the flu every year and an average of 36,000 people die from it.
