How did the LOGISTICS of having people flown by helicopter to the Louis Armstrong Airport and then flown to other destinations come together? JUST MAGIC? I saw a fueling plane come on the scene to resupply the military helicopters so they could remain airborn 24 hours. I guess this just came together magically as well?

Constructive, I was referring to the commentaries made on Good Morning America today and comments by actual victims, why don't you ask them if they are telling the truth or not. They seemed to be referring the lack of urgency, not whether any thing was ever done at all. You seem to have such a commitment to the perspectives of white nay Sayers where blacks are concerned, who also feel they have a right to dictate what a black persons experience is for them instead of allowing them and others...

Irrational discrimination??? Please give me an example of rational discrimination. Is that Alito's way of saying, "So what if our opinion shocks the conscience of thinking people, this is our ruling and we're sticking with it." After researching the topic of Alito, I respectfully withdraw my original post. If ever there was a nominee to get Borked, Alito is surely the man.

It would be the same way here or anywhere else because of how infectious the disease is, especially if we had no more hospitals, clinics, doctors and nurses than Liberia. However, I believe that most of these people are dying and not surviving mainly because they are not getting intravenous nutrients and hydration until they recover from a disease where the nature of the disease causes extreme diarrhea, which causes dehydration and an inability to keep food and drink down. But, I still say...

I do think it is passed by touch, through moisture on the skin. I do think if an infected person coughs or sneezes others can catch it. The fact it is a virus makes it very contagious because viruses are so small a mist of water can be packed with Ebola. The first rule of Ebola is to NEVER EVER touch a person infected with Ebola, that is the primary way to get infected. I read some time ago about ten people got infected with it because they handled a dead body, in that part of the world they...

When you don't know for certain you err on the side of caution. Proof may get you killed. I don't understand why they brought any ebola victims to the US. Was that supposed to be macho? They should be sending volunteers to Africa to try and stop it. The more people who get infected the higher the probability that random mutation could cause it to evolve into an even deadlier form. It may be a low probability but what is the point of taking the risk? It had to evolve into existence after all. Xum
