    Well, sure..

    But if you believe the CDC, those five poor wretches who all died after sharing a cab were either engaging in an acrobatic group sex act back there, or at least were all enthusiastically kissing each other! Or did they ALL have open sores on their arms or bodies, which just happened to get soaked in sweat from the ONE infected person in the group?

    I don't buy it.

    I'm not buying anything at the moment. Side note, can ebloa live outside the tropics?

    I would explain things to you but....I'm all out of crayons and puppets.

    I suspect Ebola can live anyplace it has natural carriers. Most of the US doesn't have wild primate populations. I have no idea if the species of monkeys which have apparently now naturalized in South Florida can be carriers of the disease.

    They still really haven't tracked down the carriers of the virus in Africa- for sure. They *think* it may come from fruit bats, as well as primates.

    Yeah, but what is not said is how primates 'bark at each other' as part of their territorial display and how it has been recorded that these barks project saliva through the air. I would also suspect that the minimum wage cleaning crews did a less than sterling job of observing the rules of sanitation, spreading the virus as a result but not reporting so to investigators (CYA).
    It sure makes for National best sellers and million dollar paydays though.
    On the plus side:
    Worst case: cities would be depopulated, change of govt assured through targeted dual mode attrition, 3rd world would collapse, Muslims would die by the 100s of millions Zombies would have a food surplus, malls would die off, lots of WIN
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.

    Conspiracy believers are everywhere --

    There was a critical moment when I realized this current Ebola outbreak, already out of control, was going to get much worse. It was while I was waiting in line to buy minutes for my pre-paid cell phone in Kenema, the third largest city in Sierra Leone.

    A 4-wheel-drive ambulance carrying Ebola victims from the countryside screamed by on the way to Kenema Government Hospital and an odd scene unfolded around me: despite the dying victims inside that car, people were giggling. I asked what was so funny.

    “There is no Ebola. It’s a scam by the government to get more foreign aid money,” one man explained. “It’s one family that was cursed. A snake bit them all as they slept.”

    Has there been any official word about the NY man at Mt. Sinai?

    I don't know. Maybe the patent will say.

    Exclamation Hell is freezing over....

    From CNN:

    EBOLA is HERE: 5 reasons not to panic The article is rubbish, but the video talks about "Chain of Transmission". Hey, some credible news is actually being reported
    Found it interesting that the woman they reference "did not know she was sick with ebola". In this culture, I think that statement is noteworthy. Our task masters generally insist on working their mules till they drop.

    Well, today... we have Morocco confirmed ebola and died. Saudi man died - but last thing I saw (tests still be done) said he died of cardiac arrest. At 40. And our Mt. Sinai patient is "improving" - but no test results yet. WHO says it will have recommendations on Friday.
