The Keystone Cops vs Ebola
So lemme get this straight: Yesterday a Dallas County Dep. Sheriff, already on the Ebola-watch "short list", starts feeling puny and walks in to a neighborhood Care Now clinic. Suspecting Ebola, the doctors there call the Frisco FD, who sends a crew covered head-to-toe in full Hazmat gear.
They transport him to Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas where he gets out of the ambulance wearing shorts, a too-small hospital gown, and a paper face mask and walks right by a large group of gawking reporters and photographers in street clothes. Meanwhile, back at the Care Now clinic, they pass out Care Now Pills (aspirin?) and tell the others who were there when the deputy walked in to go on back home....all is well.
This morning the deputy is still in Presby, waiting for the results of whether or not he has Ebola or just ate a bad burrito. (This has me worried as I really like burritos!)
Really? Who's in charge of this circus? This sounds suspiciously like a Keystone Cops remake to me.
