Im also not sure if students would notice whether the principal was still around or not. Let alone shook and saddened

None of the articles on this mentions if he was vaccinated, but...

Idaho
Charter School
Mormon
Masks optional at the school where he's the principal

I'm going to guess not vaccinated as well.

Castaneda leaves behind a wife, Maria, and seven children.

Seven kids, that's pretty messed up.

The post states that he died as a result of COVID illness. This happened just as the family was getting ready to celebrate several major milestones.

Their oldest daughter was engaged to be married in a few weeks and their second oldest daughter is expecting to give birth to their first grandchild any day. One son is away serving a church mission. Three children still live at home.


Well the important thing is that he got to own the libs.

So now he gets to rule his own planet or something? Also, can't they just make masks out of the same material they use to make their magic undies? Wouldn't that guarantee divine protection from COVID?

The movie Contagion (2011) predicted a LOT of what we're going through.

But it did not anticipate that a significant percentage of people would refuse the vaccine once it was created. Because that would be insane, right?

My recollection is that Mormons are required to have enough food, money, etc. on hand to last them a year. If so, why the GoFundMe? Was he a bad Mormon? Surely, his job paid pretty well and came with benefits. Is someone just grifting off this guy's death?

"Lasting a year" in most people's minds usually means living a year, not dying in it.

I had a Mormon neighbor who was always looking for converts, and I used to gently kid him.  He had 10 kids (all by the same poor wife) and proudly showed me his three freezers full of food in the garage.  "We're supposed to be prepared in case of a catastrophe."

I told him, "Oh, yeah, all the Gentiles know, 'Come the revolution, raid the Mormons first.'"

He actually looked a little worried at that notion.

Just his immediate family is a large pool of disease vectors.

Putting aside this guy's idiocy, remember to protect yourself and your loved ones.  The early days of this disease in the United States, when it was devastating major population centers and it was relatively safe in the sticks, are over.  It's spread to everywhere!  Even to your podunk little towns and cities.  The days of bravely posturing and claiming "I'm not afraid" are over, at least they should be.  You don't have to be afraid, but you should protect yourself an loved ones.

The math that you think you learned on sports betting and Vegas betting isn't sufficient, when you're dealing with a disease, and with millions of chances of it spreading.  If you understood the math, "you wouldn't go to Vegas with those odds."  Because there's no additional payoff for beating the odds.  You were alive before you gambled, you were alive after you gambled and won...  Until you lose against the odds due to repeated wages, and eventually you die, your family dies or get financially crushed.  You're betting your life, your families life and my life on the very weakest of payouts.

Words and math hard for you, that's alright, these things are difficult to visualize.  Take a look here instead.

jtown: Covid death announcements need to include vaccination status so I know whether to care.


Well it's not a question of whether to care, but in what way to care.

If he was vaccinated then you'd cursed and be sadden by his bad luck because he did everything he could to protect himself and his family, but he still died and that's a tragedy. If he wasn't vaccinated, you'd be angry at his stupidity because he did nothing to protect himself or his family so he died and his family is probably still at risk so that's infuriating. And soooo depressingly familiar.

Don't have seven kids. Period. Ever. For any reason. 4-5 is absolutely the most anyone should have. But really more than 3 is usually excessive.

48 YO, unvaxxed, mormon, at a mask optional K-8 school, with 7 kids and a wife? whole lotta ways to get exposed to the virus right there.

Fark user imageView Full Size


so, not that unexpected.....

and yeah, he was unvaxxed, because if he was fully double vaxxed with moderna and died of covid anyway his family would be screaming about it.

when an article ( https://www.idahopress.com/news/local​/​caldwell-principal-dies-after-falling-​ill-with-covid-19/article_b3992a0d-78e​6-5f96-b299-0ed3145350a0.html ) say "his vaccination status is unknown" it means he's unvaxxed and the family doesn't want to talk about it.

but he first showed symptoms september 4th, and was dead by september 15th? that does seem a bit unexpected!

I wasn't at all sympathetic to begin with, however, even if I was, all sympathy goes out the window the second I see the words go fund me for 99% of things.

In my neighborhood some guy started a go fund me because his unlocked car got stolen, and he wanted the neighbors to help buy him a new one.

A teen down the street asked for help for a large vet bill he couldn't handle for his kitten - that kid I helped.

I thought - well *that* should raise the event to scary level for the kids.

Yep.  And, anecdotally, I don't think I've talked to anyone that's opposed to it at church.  The closest is a lady that's immunocompromised who wishes she could get it.  There are certainly some oddballs but they seem to be the extreme minority.  Of course, that doesn't make for good news, so make sure to put the spotlight on the weirdos- that's much better ratings.

A few years ago I was way too relaxed while shopping at the grocery store and stopped to examine the nutrition label on a can of beets.  Looked pretty good, so I bought the can and ate them beets.  Not bad, really.  A little earthy, but full of flavor.  And full of red.

A friend of mine passed this week from COVID also. We hadn't talked in a while (since the election really I think) as he was very Jesus-y and "both sides are bad" when it came to politics. I wish I could feel bad for him, his wife, or their five kids at home, but I would be willing to bet he wasn't vaccinated so ... meh.

And, I hate that I feel that way.
