    Any habitual action, such as eating or dressing, may be performed on the appropriate occasion, without any need of thought, and the same seems to be true of a painfully large proportion of our talk. -- Bertrand Russell

    The thing that caught my attention was that this dude "...had traveled on the A and L subway lines Wednesday night, visited a bowling alley in Williamsburg, and then took a taxi back to Manhattan."

    He reported his fever Thursday morning. Hopefully we just dodged another bullet.

    while I understand that a health care worker who has returned from treating Ebola patients would be anxious to resume their lives once they return home, perhaps there should be some sort of automatic quarantine period to see if symptoms show up

    I realize the likelihood of transmission is quite rare, but I would hope someone who'd been exposed would be willing to restrict their public activities until the incubation period had passed

    In other news, the Dallas nurse has ended her treatment and has just been released

    Sounds like those nurses are going to make it. That's really good to hear. Obviously no one deserves to die from a disease, but especially those who put themselves directly in the path of those who are sick for the greater good.

    US deaths from ebola = 1
    Annual US deaths from the flu = >3000, as high as 49,000 over the past 40 years

    US ebola infections = 3 (maybe 4, only 2 transmitted in the states)
    Annual US flu infections = between 5% and 20% of the population get the flu, approx 200,000 are hospitalized from it annually

    % of US populations panicking over ebola = >90%
    % of the US population that thinks flu shots are worthless = ?%, but apparently anyone who follows Bill Maher. Link.

    % of US population that are morons....well you can do the math.

    There isn't widespread panicking about Ebola. That is a load of crap. People are just pissed because it looks like there are things that we could be doing better to prevent ANYONE from getting the disease that aren't being done. Doesn't mean that they can be 100% foolproof, but the New Your Guy mixing with the regular population right off the plane back from TREATING Ebola seems like a pretty unnecessary risk, No? If no one else become infected it will be as a result of luck rather than sound medical practice or policy. If people feel like there isn't enough protection being offered by the people who should protect them, they will prepare on their own, and some of those preparations may seem excessive or irrational. But apparently people value their own lives more than their government betters do, so more power to them. How is this skinning anyone else's nose?

    Little girl in Mali has been confirmed to have ebola. That is the 6th African country to have at least 1 case.

    They were not covered head-to-toe. They did not use the correct gear, and had exposed skin.
    Not trying to discredit you here, but would very much like to see a source on this. The press has seemed to keep this deliberately murky

    Okay that's enough. Every one of these have ebola as a major headline. People are definitely blowing this out of proportion. My daughter came home from school and said all the kids there are talking about it, as are the teachers. She asked me if I thought we were going to die from ebola. I have had more than a few employees approach me about what measures our company is taking to prevent ebola from gaining a foothold here. It is just plain stupid. The news outlets like those above and blowing this so out of proportion that it is approaching ridiculous levels. Sure the >90% was hyperbole, but it is becoming pervasive, as it is ubiquitous in the news, but it is just plain stupid that ANYONE in America would actually be worried about it. But the ball has been set rolling, and it will be interesting to see how big it gets.
