Oh, joy. Probably one of the stupidest things they could do, and they went and done it.

Red, I was thinking the same thing, I can’t quite fathom how you can be that stupid. I’m figuring this is going to get so bad there they will be shooting people like they do in the movies. In 2 or 3 months when the disease has really spread and everyone will want to keep strangers a good distance away.August 18, 2014 at 2:17 am #22407
Years ago one of our refrigerated ships loaded with frozen chicken went to Monrovia on charter. Got there, charterer didnt have enough refrigerated storage or refrigerated trucks to move it. Canadian Captain was spastic. Hot as heck…ship beginning to run low on freon n none available in large enuf qty in port…..men in cars started showing up at request of charterer and taking as many boxes offrozen…now barely frozen, wet, dripping…soon stinking,chicken from the holds. Dealing with the people there was a horrible ordeal. Most poorly educated, many from tiny bush villages full of tribal suspicions and beliefs…gone to city to make a better life. Filthy, dirty, corrupt. Poor citizenry. This doesn’t surprise me at all. Tragedy. Count yr blessings. For all our faults and troubles….we should count ourselves mostfortunate to live here.August 18, 2014 at 2:17 am #22408

Remember that the more people get Ebola the more chances of it becoming airborne. Many may have a flu virus then get Ebola and then bingo the two viruses get together to make one hell of a virus. Then we have something more then the dead Whirlibird.August 18, 2014 at 3:49 pm #22455
Freedom raises a good point. The nature of viruses is that they mutate,and so each incidence of replication and spreading to a new host increases the chance of it mutating to an airborne variety. Sort of like the more times you roll the dice the odds of hitting your number increase.August 19, 2014 at 1:21 am #22543
The other problem is there are not many that can read there. Not very good news ether.
