Honestly, I’d much rather Bernie gave himself a month or six weeks to rest instead of trying to power through the campaign like nothing happened. No good will be served by him winning the primary and then losing the general because he’s exhausted.
Also, I greatly dislike this idea that a heart attack and major surgery in anybody – let alone a 78-year-old man – is no big deal, and everybody should just get over it, get back, and go straight back to work.
I decided to ignore the huge pile of grading and instead spend Sunday afternoon snuggling in bed and reading and then later take a walk in the park. This is the option that wins almost every Sunday, and guess what? The grading always gets done even though I don’t slaughter myself with work on weekends.
As much as I like Bernie, for our psychological health challenge I suggest we don’t follow this particular example that he sets.
