I really want to know where the meat ends up. Do the the folks in and around Taiji hoover it up like there's no tomorrow? Is it processed, mislabeled, and sold to canneries as something else? Is it in our kids lunches? Where does it go??

Re second to last paragraph...While I don't believe a child (or any human for that matter) should be denied ice cream, it's hardly a necessity comparable with medicine.

Seriously? Even though the dogs are now in "home quarantine" (not allowed in the garden??), they could easily stick the dogs in an official quarantine shelter until he can fly them out. I don't understand why they have to be killed.

With most drones only offering 10 to 20 mins of battery time, you could probably easily find a quiet corner of the park and get your drone fix before anyone had the chance to tell you to pack up. That's what I'll be doing, anyway.

Wow. This specimen should be in a psychiatric facility, at best. Whether he is beyond being a public threat or not. He most certainly should not be getting media space!

Washing your hands well or periodically using one of those alcohol sprays/gels is a start and you should avoid rubbing your eyes, too. But there's little to no protection from the inconsiderate sneezers. If you wear specs there's a bit more protection from it but at the end of the day if those that feel ill would just stay home...

Speculation, but...I would guess the stabber will go to a young offenders institute and never step foot in that school again. The principal will be dragged over the coals by the board of education, receive a hefty pay cut, and be moved along come April. I will also speculate that this involved a notorious student and it was only a matter of time before this boy hurt somebody, proper. The question is not only how to effectively punish, but also how to better prevent.

Actually it says information "including". It then goes on to say that information will be "made public regarding their age, sex, symptoms, and possible persons with whom the patient has come in contact". How will they announce the info? On the evening news, in the arrivals lounge, running up to folks point and yelling "Ugh! Ebola!"..
