This is my first attempt to post a topic so please go light on me. Mods if this has already been posted please delete. ALERT : My police informants have just informed me an Ebola patient is in NY. The 33 year old has quarantined himself in a room after his return from Africa. He is running a high fever and is being assisted by NYFD in Hazmat gear. I have no other information as of this time other than this was posted 16 minutes ago.

I noticed that within the past few days our gov't and media seems to be bending over backwards to get us to not even think about Ebola. CNN had a particularly snotty piece about this threat. I thought the tone was rather condescending. Here's the headline: "Ebola hysteria: An epic, epidemic overreaction" Then there's the never-ending...
