    Ebola screenings at school? Really?!? So, when my kindergartner spontaneously ralphs in the cafeteria, the school nurse is going to ask him, “Have you or anyone in your family been to West Africa?”. Will there be a follow up question, “Do you know anybody who has Ebola?”

    We have now moved from Reasonable Concern to Hysteria.

      Not to mention, the kid will either lie, or won’t know the answer.

    God forbid one of our kids gets Ebola or Entero Virus in school. If the government would shut the borders, this worry could be virtually eliminated. It is widely reported that Entero Virus came in through the unsecured southern border and we know Ebola came from Liberia. Seems simple. Enforce the law. Enforce our borders. Save lives.

      And don’t eat bacon!

    Dive under the bed and I’ll pull you out when it’s totally safe, probably about two weeks from now.
