Ebola and American Exceptionalism:

I just watched a Press Conference and this is what I have learned from it: As Americans, we cannot contract the ebola virus in its present form since we have the best healthcare in the world and we can track infected individuals and exposure because. We are very very safe because we are Americans. The patient is in extreme isolation in Dallas, Texas, home of the assassination of JFK and co-originators of the S&L Crisis, and thus we know that there can be no errors of judgement made because. The fact that this individual demonstrated symptoms of the virus for four days prior to his isolation is utterly irrelevant because he only came into contact with his family members and we know that this is true because. There is nothing to see here so just keep moving please. No worries. We are Americans and we are immune from this African Disease.
Do you know where I last heard claptrap expressed in this manner? When I was a young clinician and the CDC and all the so-called Health Experts discussed GRID: Gay-Related Immune Disorder, since there was absolutely no evidence that the agent infected heterosexual individuals. Same tone of voice, same surety. We are just SO SPECIAL, are we not?

As my grandmother of blessed memory used to say loudly, "UH-HUH...!"

This horror occurred 20 yards from my dental office:


A GROUP OF well-dressed college-age men and women apparently dined at an upscale Center City restaurant Thursday night before some of them brutally assaulted two gay men on the sidewalk just two blocks away.

Internet sleuths yesterday joined Philadelphia police and reward-givers in a hunt for the group of clean-cut twentysomethings linked to the shocking assault.

The chase heated up after cops released video of about a dozen white men and women wanted for questioning in the attack on the two men, ages 27 and 28.

That attack, at 10:45 p.m. Thursday on Chancellor Street near 16th, took place in front of stunned onlookers and sent the couple, together for six years, to Hahnemann University Hospital with bruises and, for one of them, severe facial fractures.
