That was really creepy. Along with the exploding bottle of swine flu in the swiss railroad station. Both weird.

“a textbook intentional disease-spreading wouldn’t look much different to this”

That’s what I keep thinking! The authorities and media types keep saying: ‘it’s already here, there’s nothing we can do...closing the border is a waste of time, blahblahblah’!

It absolutely defies logic! The more diseased people running around, the more chances for contact between people and the more people will come down with this flu.

Partisan politics and political correctness gone mad!

Not yet. If this thing gets to be a real epidemic, anyone with a fever or respiratory complaint will get one.

Thanks. I’m a fiend about hand washing, have a Sam’s club sized bottle of hand sanitizer at my desk. Knock on wood haven’t so much as had the sniffles in the last 2 years...

LOL! Good luck pal.
What obama wants, obama orders his peeps to take.
Including patents on drugs needed by “underserved” communities. I’m sure some of his globalist pals are already planning to enrich themselves with knockoff drugs. No crisis to be wasted you know.

I’m too old to be in the highest risk cohort.
First time being an old fart has been a plus (8-)

Napolitano is “in charge” because she is (God help us all) DHS Secretary and we don’t yet have a Health and Human Services Secretary

Then put CDC or the Surgeon General in charge. This is a medical problem, not a security problem...or if it IS a security problem, then the border should be closed.
