Yeah, because the people who GO to these kinds of things are relentless carriers spreading the disease. Pernicious Infectious Gatherosis. (Why do you think they insist on sitting in circles? To concentrate the airborne pathogens and make one another sicker and sicker and less resistant.) And as far as I know there is no gummint money going towards fighting it, either.
Look out when a Catter starts mumbling about pigging out. They're not kidding.
My fear is that my home may become the treatment center for THAT. I think some long-term-care residents are already planning to move in. It's like Lombosis-- always terminal, but never fatal. Suffering just goes on and on!
