Here's a cheerful thought

The guy in the news with XDR-TB is mostly being portrayed as an unthinking, selfish asshole.

But not only is his case a public health failure, it was yet another failure of Homeland Security.

He had been placed under a 'no-fly' order - and yet he got into the country anyway. Say it again: the 'no-fly' order did not protect us.

Still, by the time Mr. Speaker made his way to the United States border, an alert had been attached to his passport that warned customs agents to detain him. But the guard waved him through — a matter that is now under investigation.

Now, suppose AQ decides to deliberately infect people with, say, Ebola, and put them on planes headed for the US....
