I have a cold. One of the worst colds I’ve had, but it pales to the few times a flu virus has gotten through.

There are particularly bad strains of flu going around this year. I’m going to renew my recommendation of getting a current flu shot.

Now I know some of you would like to say that these shots are ineffective or even detrimental. Well, don’t.

This is one of those things where everyone is free to agree with me. Praise is good, too.
