Nebraska Medical Center to treat Boston doctor suffering from Ebola. – T.P.

HJL’s Comment: Again, there is no necessity to panic about Ebola being on our own shores. If I had Ebola, I would definitely want to be treated by a U.S. hospital rather than a Liberian one. There is just no comparison in standards of medicine or protections from infectious diseases. Here in the U.S., we have become jaded about the quality of medical care we receive. In spite of the damage caused by Obama Care, the standards of health care in the U.S. are still the highest of any country in the world. Excellent health care in Liberia would be considered sub-standard by even the most backwards town here in the U.S. Ebola has a 60% fatality rate of those infected, mostly because advanced care just isn’t available to them. Notice that the last two patients brought back to the U.S. have recovered remarkably well, and we expect this one to follow.

New York schools drop Michelle O’s lunch program. – P.M.

HJL adds: I can’t blame them. When I was a high school physics teacher, I often ate lunch in the school cafeteria. When Michelle Obama began meddling in the lunch programs, the food became as unappealing as colored cardboard. I ended up taking my own lunch, but I observed many students who simply threw the free lunch away and those who paid for it went elsewhere.
