Lice


    There's been a lot of talk about head lice since the beginning of school.  The newspapers, listserves, and general conversation among parents abound.  You must read this excellent article from the health section of last week's NYTimes.  "Parents, Relax.  Don't Keep them From School.  It's Just Lice" by Jane Brody gives some pretty sobering facts about these little critters.  For one
"In one study of more than 600 samples of presumed lice or eggs submitted by teachers, parents, nurses and physicians, about two-thirds turned out to be dandruff, scabs, dirt, plugs of skin cells, hair spray droplets, other insects or eggs that were no longer viable or already hatched."

Lice! Even the report of lice at another school can start a pre-real-lice panic! It is an emotional response-very resistant to facts.
