    So you don't have children........but have no problem putting yourself at further risk of dying early. I have children and would like to prolong our existence on planet Earth as long as I can.......that is a normal human reaction to a threat on their life.

    I think it is an overreaction based an irrational fear of an extremely unlikely scenario. The average annual income in West Africa is about $300. Most people there have a hard time earning enough money to feed themselves let alone purchase tickets for an international flight to the United States. The odds of you or anyone you know coming into contact with a contagious Ebola infected person from West Africa is astronomical.

    I'm gonna e-mail your response to the the young nurse in Dallas who is suffering from Ebola because we gave a visitor visa to an Ebola infected Liberian.......I'm sure she will agree......

    I find it irrational thinking on the part of the government that we send "boots on the ground" to help combat Ebola. They are targets of a disease they are now saying it is an airborne transmitted disease. My concern is they will be bringing infected soldiers back.
    We may not agree on everything but I bet we could find some common ground.

    CDCís new Ebola model estimates the potential future impact of the epidemic. According to the modelís worst case scenario, which assumes no change in the trajectory of the epidemic and also corrects for underreporting, the number of Ebola cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone together could reach 1.4 million by the end of January 2015. This translates into a whopping 14% cumulative prevalence rate. To put this in perspective, an equivalent rate in the U.S. population would be almost 45 million people nationally, and more than 90,000 in Washington, DC alone.

    If something even close to this scenario occurs, it'll be a financial wipe-out in the markets.

    The young nurse in Dallas volunteered to care for Thomas Duncan and I'm sure she will agree too.

    What's tragic to me is that these people assumed they would be safe and contracted a deadly disease while treating a man who died anyways.
