The Entrance of Ebola


                                                        -EDITS BY RUTH RADER-

"The virus is mutating, like all viruses, and could conceivably — this is a very remote possibility — change its mode of transmission."-- Joel Achenbach and Brady Dennis, The Washington Post

The Centers for Disease Control has now updated its protocol  for those whose job it is to
care for Ebola victims.

Meanwhile, President Obama is asking people to calm down and not to panic. What better way to do that than
to introduce the soft, plush EBOLA TOY!

Yes, folks...for only $9.95, you too can have an Ebola playmate of your very own...assuming that the Giant Microbes company can keep up with the demand.

But the fear of Ebola is spreading...along with the actual disease. And some people are now getting
downright tough about the situation.

Yeah, just cruise on over and check out the latest. Maybe there really is HOPE??!!

“No one can tell what goes on in between the person you were and the person you become. No one can chart that blue and lonely section of hell. There are no maps of the change. You just come out the other side.
Or you don't.”
Stephen King, The Stand

It's the stuff of nightmares...and it's coming (but not to a theatre near you). And I am now paying
close attention to its progress. You should pay attention, too.

Because this is real.

Thomas Frieden, the Director of the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) is now declaring that EVERY hospital in the United States should be prepared for the possible admission of patients infected with Ebola.

Here is a list of Quarantine Stations , as listed on the CDC website, in the United States and its
Territories.

If you think that it looks like I am doing my homework, you're darn right I am! That's because I
am now reading quotes like this:

"We need to consider the possibility that there could be additional cases, particularly among the health care workers who cared for" Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan, he said, adding: "We're concerned that there could be other infections in the coming days." --Thomas Frieden

You see the problem and its growing potential here.

I repeat: PAY ATTENTION.

The Colors Of Corvallis

I have begun taking photographs of  Corvallis, Oregon. Corvallis is a very photogenic place in the Fall. Autumn truly swings and blings in this part of the Country. As I take and edit more photos, I will post them here.
