Second Dallas Nurse, Cured of Ebola, Goes Home
Amber Vinson, one of the two nurses who contracted Ebola in Dallas, left Emory University Hospital in Atlanta today.
Good Ebola News for Animal Lovers
Bentley, Dallas nurse Nina Pham’s dog, has tested negative for Ebola. He will be tested again before his quarantine is up on November 1. Um, Spain, this is how you do it. I’m guessing Teresa Romero’s dog, Excalibur, would have been Ebola negative too, but we’ll never know for sure, will we Spain, because you irrationally rushed to kill him.
Pham herself has been upgraded from fair to good at NIH in Bethesda, MD. I’m looking forward to seeing her reunited with Bentley.
The Center for Disease Cluelessness
Nina Pham, the first nurse to get Ebola from Thomas Eric Duncan, is about to be moved from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas to NIH in Bethesday, Maryland. The other nurse, Amber Vinson, has already been moved to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
So it looks as if Texas Health Presbyterian is finally getting out of the Ebola business, which they never should have been in in the first place.
Aside from Emory and NIH, Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha and St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, Montana have the specialized containment units and the expertise to deal with diseases like Ebola.
I’ll watch the second season of Girls when it begins on January 13, and I’ve been trying to figure out why.
It doesn’t have an anti-hero I hate to love, but can’t help myself, like J. R. Ewing or Tony Soprano.
It doesn’t have characters I care about so much that I cheer for them and cry for them, like Treme. I mean when LaDonna showed up at Albert’s chemo session, I just wanted to join her and hold his other hand.
The only thing I can think of is that it makes me relieved to be the age I am and grateful that I came of age when I did.
The Analogies to the Carter Era Just Won’t Stop
Even “Dallas,” which debuted in April 1978, is back. Tonight on TNT.
I, for one, am very excited and can’t wait. J. R. is a long-lost friend I thought I’d never see again.
But if I worked at the White House, it would creep me out. And if I were Mitt, I’d take it as a good omen.
