    The narrow opinion is that Ebola is a bigger threat than AIDS, or flu, or malaria, or any number of health problems.

    Interesting that Duncan's closest contacts, family and friends, are now out of quarantine and free of Ebola. It shows that catching it isn't that predictable. My guess is that the chances of...

    You can take the narrow view, I'll take the bigger one. Ebola is scarier and quicker to kill, but other diseases will kill far more people this month than Ebola will have in the last 4 decades....

    I really doubt if 30 million Africans will die of Ebola, as they did with AIDS. I'd rather have a disease with a narrow contagious window. Infected? Quarantine. With AIDS many got infected and didn't...

    It's my understanding that the SG has no "power" per se, other than an educational one. He/She has to report to the Assistant Secretary of Health. What's needed is someone who can crack agency heads...

    As usual our focus is 99% on ourselves. The coverage of what's going on in West Africa has been piss poor. While we focus on 2 nurses the Africans may be looking at 10,000 a week!

    First rule of politics: push the good wife out in front of the TV cameras. First rule of the military: someone lower down the ranks did it. First rule of the Rich/Famous: get an expensive lawyer.
