    Shouldn’t Doctors Without Borders be requiring a quarantine for all docs returning to their homes from Ebolaland? While I do think the doctor was extremely irresponsible, I think DWB and any other organization supporting the efforts in Africa should be stepping up their game to prevent the spread of this icky!

    He had to have known before he got to a 103 temp! Holy cow! I would be checking and checking, while avoiding everyone and catching up on Netflix. Can’t be too hard to kick back and NOT be a social butterfly while you wait to see if you have the freaking plague!

    You win the internet for the rest of the day!

    After working in Ebola land, he had a 103 degree fever and diarrhea before he took his butt to the hospital?? I guess it is true, doctors make the WORST patients!

    No offense or anything, but shouldn’t he know better?

    “I am really not trying to be clever,” he said.

    Well, thanks for clearing that up.

    “We have to keep our guard up,” Frieden told reporters on a conference call.

    Such interesting words coming from the guy who has denied all along that we have any need to put our guard up…

    One-upped by a third world country on health and security measures… Way to go, O.

    Hey Sarge,

    I think there is a lot of posturing going on. Shuffle the pieces on the board and appear to be doing something useful. Next, I expect them to acknowledge that the CDC has not been living up to its potential, so they will place it under DHS… Because that worked so well with FEMA (sarc). All these apparently useful actions have a tendency to end badly for us.

    Hey Monk,

    Meanwhile, here in CT, 2 Yale students who went to Liberia to help with the techie stuff being used by the Govt there for tracking the disease, returned home and were self-quarantining. They never came in contact with medical personnel in Liberia and they never had contact with anyone who was sick. So, it was just out of a good deal of caution, they were being quarantined of their own will. Earlier this week, Yale comes out and says that it is unnecessary, and lifts their quarantine. Tells them they are fine and just to rest up from their travels. Last night one of them was admitted to Yale New Haven Hospital with Ebola like symptoms. Awesome. Thanks Yale.

    Obama: “I shook hand with, hugged, and kissed … a couple nurses at Emory because of the valiant work they did treating one of the patients.”

    Why does he have to go and get people all excited about hope and change again?

    Oh, wait… He isn’t saying he hugged and kissed on anyone from the hospital in Texas…

    Hey Michele,

    I think we may all need more help than a moderator can give! Have any extra hazmat suits you are looking to get rid of? That could help. :)

    Yep. And apparently they are changing the definition of “symptom” as well, considering they have said all along that FEVER is a symptom. She knew she had a fever of 99.5 when she flew.

  • [1] October 15, 2014 at 12:32pm

    Oh good. I had just posted that he was supposed to be here today (CT). We won’t miss him. So, any guesses what his big plan will be to prevent this from spreading?

    But…. but…. If it was before the patient was symptomatic, according to the CDC, it is all puppies and rainbows.

    Oh, and in case you were wondering where Obama is today, he is in CT. Apparently, campaigning for gov. Malloy is more important than anything else he could be doing today.

    You nailed it.

    Know with certainty that the government doesn’t care for your existence. We are little pawns, irrelevant to them in all ways other than the money and power they get when we vote them in to office.

    Isn’t anyone the slightest bit curious as to how Duncan’s family that he was with in that apartment while violently ill hasn’t come down with it yet, but 2 nurses who were presumably using some measure of caution have gotten it?

  • [13] October 14, 2014 at 12:35pm

    Wow. It is pretty difficult to know which idiots to listen to anymore… Frieden seems to think you can only catch ebola if you break his special protocol. WHO seems to think it is going to spread like wildfire, and then others really want to avoid “Scaremongering”…

    So, how many videos of people in protective suits boarding planes to assess passengers have you seen? I have seen several so far. Apparently, sneezing on a plane is the same as yelling “BOMB”. Given that it can take over a month to get an appointment with a doctor, maybe the answer is to take your flu symptoms on a plane… Then you will be treated immediately.

    No amount of pay would draw me to that work. God bless them. I couldn’t stand the heat, let alone the deadly cooties.

    Hey, the answer is “No” unless you ask… Then it may still be “No.” Actually, you may lose your job for violation of some email communication policy within the company. Or you could be fired for spending half of your shift drafting an email when you have a job to do. While I admire folks who ask for a raise when their compensation is bleak but they love their job, I don’t think putting the CEO on the spot in front of the whole company is an appropriate way to ASK for a raise.
