All of them are going to be in confined indoor spaces this week, around older professors and other SMU staff

Please tell me the country on earth who have managed to restrict infections such that only young people are getting infected and older people aren't. Oh, that country, state, ,or city doesn't exist. Period.

Nobody in the history of disease has every managed to allow community spread amongst one age group and prevented it from impacting the other age groups. Ever.

If nobody has ever been able to do it before, I highly doubt that we will be able to do it now. Over the summer, we already knew that for the most part it was older people dying. But yet we couldn't prevent people from dying - 15K in Texas, 200K across the US.

If you want to make the argument that masks shouldn't be required on a hot day in open air environments because the risk of transmission is low, that is a legit point of discussion.

But if you are going to try and argue that we will be the first country on earth to ever prevent community spread of a disease to a specific segment of the population, to put it nicely... the odds of that actually happening are incredibly low and it isn't really a viable option.


Sweden says hi.


Google "has sweden prevented old people from geting covid" and tell me what their Prime Minister says.


Not sarcasm but this is the most recent article I can find. Weird headline but I wanted to cut this paragraph out:

"The country so far appears to have avoided a second wave of infections, with its current 14-day number of cases per 100,000 standing at 28 - far below the UK at 72.8 and Spain at 310.9."

It must be so nice there to not feel like you had your entire world turned upside down. Fortunately, we live in Texas and not in NY where they send COVID+ patients to nursing facilities.

Back to keep this within the PonyFans guidelines, I'm back to defending our students 1) because of lack of an impact for those below 65 years of age 2) other schools didn't reprimand their students for the exact same thing. 3) If you are high-risk to the virus then stay home. Why risk it? Why count on people to do the "right" thing when you can control your own destiny?

Yikes. No TJ and especially Reggie is devastating.

So I think I understand the problem. The simple solution would be to defund the SMU police. The students did not obey lawful orders by law enforcement and the police responded with draconian measures :roll: .

This thread needs to be transferred to a different section. Might I suggest texags or sicem365.

And, furthermore, the 4 man front seemed more effective than the 3 man. Mike Williams made a difference when he was in there. How come he isn't listed on the roster?

Awesome how google works isn't it? Different results for different people. Sweden didn't prevent old people from dying, and neither did we here in Texas (up to 15K deaths now).

This is what I get when I google that phrase:

Love it when the same search gives completely different results :(. That said, I think the above sources are a little more reliable than The Sun :).
