    Today's news item...
    UK to begin enhanced screening for Ebola in people travelling from affected countries, government announces.

    BBC News - UK Ebola screening for arrivals from affected countries
    This presumably includes the USA?

    Tosh. Pigs will sooner fly than the UK government should discommode American travelers.

    The US is doing the same thing. Though not sure what help it will provide, unless they are tracking passengers from their origination point.

    There are no direct flights from the affected countries apparently, into the UK anyway.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    So the people in question have left the affected countries, and traveled through at least one other airport somewhere, to get to the UK. I suspect the same for entry into the US.

    If they prove to be infected when they arrive in London, or New York, or wherever, there is a good chance that they have already exposed a number of fellow travelers.

    Something about a barn door comes to mind.

    Reminds me of when I actually wrote letters to some of my various elected representatives.

    An original answer (or seemingly so) was more valued than the standard bla bla bla we so often hear, like on Featured Responses

    If there was something to standout, no doubt that guy (or lackey) would make hay on it.
