    And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span? [Luke 12:25].

    Thanks for the link to PBS. I was wondering what the Democrat talking points would be after Obama said that it can't happen here and it did almost immediately. PBS did a good job of postulating the Democrats point of view and changing the subject from Obama's false prediction. It's nice to know that the Democrats have a list of diseases worse than Ebola.

    CTB and Alcott both make good points.

    Using preventative wisdom is better than worrying.

    Don't go to West Africa for a vacation.

    When I was a child the two greatest fears were

    1) Atomic and Hydrogen bomb attacks from the Russians.
    Siren would wail away and we would have to get under your desks and cover our
    necks (like that would help to defeat nuclear fusion).

    2) Getting Polio.

    Then God gave us Jonas Salk.

    Sorry. I don't know what I was thinking. I got myself mixed up.

    Everyone here is upset because we have these people using the Indianapolis airport. The public does not know if this disease is airborne because some are saying that it is. Also, it apparently stays in your body fluids for 90 days even after you recover if you do. Personally, I don't think that the US military should be asked to assist in these situations. I think that WHO should be given that contract.

    Thanks for helping me out during the brain lapse.

    I had to double take on your username. When I saw your post I thought Obama had joined.
