If I didn't scroll through this thread, I would not have remembered that I was reading that grisham book.  I am about 1/2 way through Rothruss' first book. It's good, but apparently not a must read in my mind...

I have literally not finished a book this year.

Crazy.
Have you finished Name of the Wind?  I really liked that one, and it may have been a timing thing or something for me and I feel the 2nd book is weaker but still enjoyable.  Just curious what you thought.

I found this diary from an aid worker quiet riveting, and scarily similar to many books I've read.   

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/ebola-virus-british-aid-workers-3956692

I'm by no means making light of the situation with the book reference, and realize the risk is low, but you can't tell me you read it and didn't think of a zombie novel.

There are Islamist extremists running rampant...in Mexico?  And they're coming over the border?

Apparently I have missed some significant developments lately.

There are 1,000's of non-Mexicans crossing daily.    To think that those that want us all dead haven't already used the open border, or aren't actively trying to is completely naive.   Almost as naive as thinking a majority of those crossing are children.

Chikungunya has made it here, and has a confirmed case that doesn't originate from Caribbean travel.  A bribe in the right place to let someone get on an international flight, and we've got serious problems.  The big thing keeping Ebola from being truly terrifying is that it's spread by fluids, not through the air.  That, and it's acquired from African animals.  It would be quite difficult for it to obtain a foothold here in the US, and then migrate to a wild animal population repository.  It's a bit different when your society doesn't require the eating of wild animals.

Good points. 

It does spread from sweat though, right, as that's a fluid?  That, and our awful open southern border, is why I'm more concerned.

I believe so, but again, you've got to connect the dots.  How much travel is going to originate in African areas, head to Mexico via some path, and then trickle across the southern border?  Especially for people that are consuming bush meat or those that come in close proximity to said people?

I'm not saying that nothing will go wrong - but if a case(s) does show up here we have the infrastructure to better 'combat' the occurrence.

Look at the footage of the medical facilities there - beds right beside each other etc. 

Yea, well, that isn't what you said.  Of course a developed nation has a better infrastructure to combat an outbreak like this, that is why those of us that live in developed nations our blessed.  To say, "nothing to see here" and your lame ass jab at Fox News is ignorant (and I bit the hell out of my tongue there).

wow! Talk about doomsday here guys.

The 'experts' are all saying that should it migrate to NA we have tried and true quarantine procedures that would serve to greatly lessen the impact.

Nothing to see here - move along (or keep watching Fox News..... ninja)

I'd like to politely ask to keep this from being moved to R&P because I legitimately want to participate, and my conservative ass isn't allowed there.

However, to think that it's unlikely it gets here is naive at best, and I Hope to God our quarantine procedures are that bullet proof.  The Fox News jab was frankly nauseatingly naive as well.

I hit a new personal best tonight and made it to rank 11!  The match to get there was one of the best matches I've ever had.  They guy I beat was playing priest and we both immediately sent each other invites when it was over.  It was so back and forth it was nuts.  If he had won he'd have made it to 11 too!   Anyway, still loving this game and for me it's probably my GOTY so far, with Infamous as a very close second. 

I had never played anything like this before and to like this as much as I do is worthy of at least a mid-year GOTY.0

I have something like this too, internet and tv through the electric power board here in Chattanooga.  They claim
We have the fastest internet in the country and I couldn't wait to switch from comcast to them 2 years ago, not because of the speed, but because of my feelings towards comcast, which are enormously negative.

Are you going to be able to keep your service as is? IIRC, it's a Tennessee rep that is the one who started this bill in the first place. She is heavily funded by the cable companies as well.

I haven't heard about this, id like to see them try and take it from me though.  I kid of course, but my particular city is putting a lot on our recognition as " the gig city" and I assure you this isn't because of "Xfinity".  In reality it's a big reason we've had Amazon and VW open centers/plants here.  There is way too much riding on that for some broad (sp, never used it in this context before today, but it seemed appropriate) with Comcast money in her pocket to do a damn thing about it.

Our politicians frankly won't let that happen.  If they do, I'll be here talking about it I promise.

Summary of what is going on in your state with muni-broadband. Your state already came up with a law limiting it, and your congressman is leading the way at the federal level. All of this is being funded by the big cable companies.

Thank you for sharing Lee, she isn't in my district, but anyone supporting this nonsense will not get my vote!

I love Yogurt too.  I like tart flavored with fruit, Blue Berries or blackberries are my favorite.  I love granola with it too, and feel if you use low fat yogurt and granola for breakfast that is perfectly healthy.

Regarding heartburn ATB, I used to struggle with that too, but a few weeks ago tried the off brand Prilosec and couldn't be happier.  I've had no heartburn, eaten no tums and find it to work wonderfully.  I'm going to talk with my doctor to make sure it's okay to keep taking it.  It was like 7.99 at Walmart.

I'll be curious to hear what your doctor says about Prilosec.   Mine told me it was ok to use short term, but take it too long and it runs the risk of damaging your kidneys. 

I'll let you know for sure, hate to hear what yours told you as I love never having heart burn.  I first need to schedule a routine physical, which I'll do in the next week or so.
