Max Armstrong talks about flu epidemic, indoor farm shows and school shootings. (audio)

The way this flu epidemic is roughing folks up, you don’t want to mess around with it. A 37-year-old mother of two in Indiana was diagnosed with flu last week and died Monday from pneumonia. She didn’t get a flu shot. Flu season typically extends through April so we have a few months to go yet.

This has been a tough week for fire trucks. Maybe you heard of fire truck that caught fire and burned? Or the one that was hit by the Telsa car on semi-autonomous autopilot mode?

The indoor farm shows are drawing good attendance, we hear.

A professor at Northeastern University said while we have had school shootings over 20 years. For many kids, school is safest place for many kids. School shootings are becoming less deadly, the professor says.
