    People who work for a living and who don’t have health insurance, cannot get tested, since most probably they would be at work. So, therefore, this makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE AT ALL !!!!!!!!!!!

    • Supporter of One Party Rule

      Dear “At”, please turn down your ALL CAPS outrage. I agree this should be held after work or on a weekend, but a few will benefit from Cymbo’s effort, so it makes some sense, if not AT ALL sense.

    • Ralph Kramden

      At Work, you seem very upset. Remember this little ditty, Pins and Needles, Needles and Pins, happy is the man who grins.

        Hey Ralph, How’s your buddy Ed? Guess you have nothing to contribute, so you post this. Some people have trouble seeing posts that are not in CAPS. So, I do it for them. Don’t know who started this nonsense that typing in caps is SHOUTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Awww, shaddup! I saw a great cartoon. 2 astronauts on the moon, with a lady on the ground. One astronaut says to the other “We found Alice”….
        Getting back to the original article, I urge everyone who can, to take these tests. Don’t think “nothing can happen to me, i’m okay, those bad things happen to someone else”. That’s what I thought till it was almost too late (and my readings were good!)
