Have you ever been to Dallas? Ebola is the last thing to worry about there (and possibly not the reason for the exodus). I was stuck in the financial district for a week and though I would die of boredom. laugh

If you believe that then I've got some land in Florida to sell you. Never floods.

I think any new group or person for that matter calling out people in Dallas for being overly worried for their life and their loved ones lives should win an all expense trip to Dallas to ride public transportation for a few days to put their money where their mouth is.

As long as they are not hurting others to do what they need to do to feel safe I fail to see that as a bad thing.

Personally I would rather ride a roller coaster at six-flags right now than visit Dallas.

My wife's coming through Dallas tomorrow on a connecting flight to the Abilene airport, coming home from caring for the new granddaughter for a week.

When do y'all think the nation will hit Ebola-overload with regards to news devoted to it? I'm kinda getting there now. I told my wife: "don't touch anything and don't lick the counters (old family joke concerning our son when he was a toddler).

Here is the truth. There is a moral compass and we may discern right from wrong. We may refrain from deliberate participation in some all-pervading "mist" of some "system," avoiding many of its manipulations while we are at it. The assertion I made is valid. That line from "All the President's Men: "Follow the money," is apt.

Greed drives much of human endeavor.

I was unable to locate any news online to verify this 3rd-hand report of Dallas being voluntarily evacuated. Any updates from bro?

Pulling people out of the ditc...
well, i for one am very happy to see that we have named an ebola czar...now, some of you may be concerned that he has no medical background or medical training, but that is of no concern. He is imminitely qualified for this role, as he has a heavy background in "being able to ensure the message is being delivered consistently".

i feel safer already.

Now, i eagerly await appointments of other czars for things that are killing us or we need to improve upon:

1 - seatbelt use czar
2 - cancer czar
3 - eliminating fast food czar
4 - HFCS czar
5 - drink more water czar
6 - exercise czar
7 - personal responsibility czar
8 - big gulp czar
9 - credit use czar
