The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is very concerned about ebola potentially being spread on commercial aircraft:

The Hot Zone was hailed by many as a chilling and accurate story of lethal viruses and their encounters with humans.[3][4] Because Preston's writing style is that of a "science fact" thriller, some critics[5] accused Preston of dramatizing and exaggerating the effects of an Ebola virus infection and embellishing facts with his own imagination. Since its publication in 1994, however, The Hot Zone is generally regarded as a nonfiction work and acknowledged for its masterful dramatization.[who?] In his blurb, horror writer Stephen King called the book, "one of the most horrifying things I've ever read." The entire small book is available at:

This is a fragment from the little (nonfiction) book:

"He appears to be holding himself rigid, as if any movement would rupture something inside him. His blood is clotting up-his bloodstream is throwing clots, and the clots are lodging everywhere. His liver, kidneys, lungs, hands, feet, and head are becoming jammed with blood clots. In effect, he is having a stroke through the whole body. Clots are accumulating in his intestinal muscles, cutting off the blood supply to his intestines. The intestinal muscles are beginning to die, and the intestines are starting to go slack. He doesn't seem to be fully aware of pain any longer because the blood clots lodged in his brain are cutting off blood flow. His personality is being wiped away by brain damage.

"This is called depersonalization, in which the liveliness and details of character seem to vanish. He is becoming an automaton. Tiny spots in his brain are liquefying. The higher functions of consciousness are winking out first, leaving the deeper parts of the brain stem (the primitive rat brain, the lizard brain) still alive and functioning. It could be said that the who of Charles Mont has already died while the what of Charles Monet continues to live."

Damn. I really think they should ground all the passenger planes everywhere right now. I seriously do.

blues, the only reason i can think of that you would post a repot wit the title of ebola in town is that either: you are a conservative troll or just batshit crazy.

I know there is a video called ebola in town, but when you post an article on the portland indy media website titled ebola in town it has certain connotations.
