Goooood Morniiiiiiiiiing, Gerbil Nation, from scant miles northeast of America’s Ebola Capital!

Read earlier that two schools in Solon, OH (Greater Cleveland area) will be closed for disinfecting today because someone on the staff may have flown from Dallas to Cleveland on the same Frontier aircraft used by the Ebola patient who was flown here from Dallas yesterday.

The CDC’s mission statement:

CDC works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.
.
CDC increases the health security of our nation. As the nation’s health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health threats. To accomplish our mission, CDC conducts critical science and provides health information that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats, and responds when these arise.

They’ve done stellar work protecting us from salt, alcohol, obesity and guns; potential deadly pandemics, not so much. But they have a lovely $106,000,000 “visitor’s center”. Here’s a cheery 2007 Senate Subcommitee report on how they spend our money.

Heckuva job, CDC!

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
And a big ole’ S.H.I.T. to Fatwa, too!

In re Sen. Coburn’s 2007 report on the CDC: how many of those recommendations on pages 111-113 have been implemented? Exactly zero.

At my age, such good wishes are always appreciated. 😉
