Mayor Bill DiBlasio in this morning's Times:
"Ebola is an extremely difficult disease to get."*
Ed read that out loud to me and said, "That's why medical personnel are wearing hazmat suits."
Interestingly, the Times seems to have cut the line. At least, I don't find it on the site now. Found it in the Daily Mail.
I take his point .... which is, I assume, that Ebola is hard to get from a subway seat. (Let's hope so, seeing as how practically everyone I know has been on the subway this week.)
If you're the mayor, try to get it right.
And stop telling me to remain calm.
