So on Thursday I went on this tangent about lice and cleanliness and was SCHOOLED about how off that was.
I sincerely apologize for my misunderstanding.
I did want to say I think my logic came from when lice occurs -- the families that don't address it and continue to let it live in their homes and on their children and then let those children go out and play with other kids who then bring it home and the cycle continues. THAT'S the cleanliness I was trying to get at but failed to convey.
I understand the medication is expensive and treatment is daunting and time consuming and potentially expensive (say, if you have to wash every fabric thing you own and don't own your own washer) but sometimes, people need to think about the greater good instead of their own convenience.
Anyway, I learned my lesson about not researching something before I rant about it. Thanks for being so kind and understanding in setting me straight. :)
