Irresponsible Doc Brings Ebola to NYC: Bad News with a Silver Lining?

Unfortunately, an irresponsible young physician has brought Ebola to NYC.  I hope he enjoys a swift recovery.

Maybe this story comes with a silver lining. As long as Ebola was a problem only in Red States and Flyover Country, it could be treated as an abstraction and a political issue. Now that it's stricken at the heart of Blue America, sensible pragmatic strategies can replace politically correct posturing (e.g., stringent travel restrictions).

Speaking of Red States, here's how a Tennesee physician dealt with the risk:

"Doctor from Morristown, Tennessee who self-quarantined after returning from treating Ebola patients in Africa"
