    No one is proposing we yell fire. What's being proposed is that we do something.

    You have COMPLETELY ignored my arguments to run off on a wild hate filled tangent.

    Then again, you do think that chemical filled shells subjected to 20+ years of hot desert exposure means they're good as when they rolled off the chemical plant.

    Reasonable discussion is beyond you.

    You know the raging partisans here hate facts.

    I'd actually love to see one of these "Obama's the fault for everything bad that's ever happened in history" come up with an actual solution. All they do is complain.

    Our SARS experience came in handy. We don't take chances. Be proactive.

    I don't find it odd. The concern comes into play when the person is symptomatic. Flights mean close quarters with other people so there is a higher risk of those people being exposed to the virus. It isn't airborne but can be transmitted through droplets of saliva or mucous following a cough or sneeze for example.
