Quarantining Freedom's Ghosts
Connecticut declared a state of emergency for people at risk of having and passing the Ebola virus. Connecticut is one of the original thirteen colonies. Peer Virginia employed smallpox blankets as method of war.
Connecticut's Governor empowered the Public Health Commission to take away someone's freedom for a deadly disease epidemic half a world away. Fear comes in many sizes. Ebola is a whopper.
Update 10-12-14: A Texas hospital worker contracted Ebola from the Index patient. Texas' Public Health System has been decimated in the new millennium. The world has seen mistake after mistake after mistake in Texas around Ebola. It's indicative of a system without comprehensive capability. Don't worry folks, it's safe to invest in Africa.
