    No, the whole idea of quarantine was for governor's to show how tough they were at standing down a monster the size of a small ant, at the expense of a true American hero.... of course, all with great in difference (and ignorance) to the actual the science behind it. It was political grandstanding at its best (of course, who cares about the innocent lives affected)..

    Eh. I'm not going to say that Ebola wasn't sensationalized, but taking it seriously was how it was beat. A quarantine that seems extraneous after the fact was ultimately sensible, IMHO.

    And another medical professional has died. I guess he should have told them to go pound sand.

    It's curious that you say Ebola has been "beat." The exact same risks to the general population - approximately zero - are present today as were present when we had 4 or 5 infected people in the U.S. And the disease is still killing people in Africa, U.S. workers are still there treating people, they're going to come home, etc.

    Just as a general comment, it's pretty frightening how easily the population was worked into an irrational panic about a disease that really wasn't ever a risk to anyone not dealing with extremely sick patients here or in Africa. Or, whatever risk Ebola was, it paled in comparison to the daily risk we all take driving to the store for a carton of eggs or to work.

    Told who to go pound sand?

    I guess you're referring to the doctor who died a few days ago in Nebraska, after being flown here in critical condition for treatment in a specialized unit? Why would he tell "the G" to go pound sand? What did "the G" do wrong in his case?

    OK, then who? Is being cryptic somehow your goal? If so, you're doing a helluva job!

    BTW, "No, and no." makes no sense. There were three questions and only one can be answered with a yes or no.
