Don’t Go There 2

The innerwebs tell me that panicked pols are touting banning travel to west Africa, even though portions of west Africa have struggled with ebola for years, and the rest of the world, for all practical purposes, has done little or nothing to help, because (to be blunt) it was Africa and nobody outside of Africa cared much if at all.

Methinks, as regards the US right now, a ban on travel to Texas would be more to the point.

After all, Texas is the US epi(demic)center for the disease and, unlike, say, for example, just to mention one, Nigeria, has proven itself incapable of dealing with the contagion.

    Touche. Let the Republican House handle the response, then watch it slowly turn into a worldwide catastrophe.

    It seems an obvious precaution.
