Costco has 4 hour lines here in NY yesterday. the media was there - the lines were full of the same kind of run down senior citizens you see at the casinos, smoking their brains out at the slot machines.

There were long lines at an area Safeway in the middle of the week. One elderly lady got heat exhaustion and was wandering in search of shade when she fell and hit her head on the electrical meter, and died later. I was thinking at the time that she probably would have been better off, and still alive, if she'd taken her chances with getting the flu. There were also long lines at an area Costco, and two elderly people collapsed from heat exhaustion and had to be treated. It was hot here last week, upper 80's and lowe 90's, and elderly folks don't have the ability to regulate their body temperatures as well as younger people, so are susceptible to such things as heat exhaustion.

I've gotten a flu shot occasionally, but I must say that in the years I haven't gotten the shot, I've only gotten flu maybe once that I can remember. At any rate, I won't be getting a shot this year since I'm not in one of the risk categories.
