Swine flu – Texas postpones high school athletics

Baseball playoffs have been pushed back a week and the regional round of track meets has been cancelled on action of the University Interscholastic League. Unless you’re going to vaccinate state-level athletes or something, seems like an overreaction. A big overreaction.

If the swine flu is really THAT serious, cancellation would be the only reasonable route.

Wonder how much posturing by Lil Ricky Perry was behind this? And, will Mr. Tea Douche Bag ask for more, and more, and more, and more, and more, federal help?

Update: Of course, UIL is now doing a partial rethink.
