1. When I was a kid, there were clinics in the schools for polio immunizations.

I remember feeling very harshly treated and I was a bit mollified when some years later, Mom said she was upset at the time at how roughly the kids were treated.

Now that I'm older and realize what was going on at the time, I'm OK with all of that. The teams running the clinics were under the gun to run as many kids through as humanly possible. They were probably med students, EMTs, or Army medics "volunteered" for clinic duty and they probably would have preferred to have been anyplace else.

But they did good. Nobody I knew at the time got polio. Much thanks, people. And, thanks in advance to the next wave.
