  •  closing colleges gets much more expensive and (0+ / 0-)

    troublesome, though there are arguments that can be made for early closure there as well; namely that most college towns assume that young people are going to be healthy, and don't have anywhere near the facilities needed in a pandemic.

    fouls, excesses and immoderate behavior are scored ZERO at Over the Line, Smokey!

    •  How do you figure? (0+ / 0-)

      Closing colleges isn't expensive--you probably save money. That's certainly the argument the one where I work makes every summer when they go to a four-day workweek. Turn off the lights and turn up the thermostats in empty buildings = energy savings. Even if you still have to pay the employees.
