Pandoras box…..redux 2.0

October 17, 2014

At the end of September I mentioned a novel by Steven King called the ‘Stand’. In it Mr King began the novel by showing how just one person could essentially infect and kill more than half the population of the United States. Now when I wrote this we had one ebola patient quarantined in a Dallas hospital, with the head of the CDC claiming that in no way could ebola spread to the general population of America……well he was wrong and we are now seeing the beginning of ebola spreading its deadly tentacles across the face of this country.

First it was one nurse infected with the virus, then her boyfriend was infected, now we have a second nurse who a day before she was quarantined flew on a commercial airliner. The CDC now realizing that ebola is in the population in general is asking for everyone who was on that flight to contact them. I am sure that soon the CDC will be looking for everyone who was in contact with those passengers to be monitored as well. This reality unfolding before our very eyes is a mirror image of what Mr King described his book. In that book he wrote about the casual contact between people who never knew they are carriers of the deadly disease spreading the virus wider and wider into the population.

We have indeed lifted the lid on Pandoras box
and as time progresses the spread of this deadly disease
will touch every corner of this nation.
