Must Be Bernie Bros

4/1/20 Washington Post:
About 70 students from the University of Texas at Austin, all in their 20s, chartered a plane to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in late March. They took the trip despite public health advice to avoid crowding as well as nonessential air travel.

On Tuesday, Austin public health officials announced 28 students, more than a third of the young people who took the trip, had returned and tested positive for the coronavirus. Many of the remaining students are under public health monitoring, according to officials.[emphasis added]
"Chartered a plane"?  My college days weren't that wealthy.  Yes, forgive student loan debt.

  1. And the Post didn't state the name of the airline who took the charter, though a reporter with the level of information he/she had obviously had to know it.

    Thin line between retribution, justice, and medical necessity these days, isn't there...
