First, how does the US have jurisdiction over murders that happened in Iraq or Afghanistan?
The Blackwater men were tried here, and now the news says the US is bringing a Russian national who fought with the Taliban for trial in the US.
I just don't understand.
Also, I don't understand someone coming back to the US after having worked with Ebola patients, and deciding to go ride the subway and go bowling and such. Wouldn't you say to yourself, "well, self, I think I'll hang out in my apartment for three weeks, just to make sure, and contact the rest of the world via email and the internet. And ask a friend to drop groceries by, but not come in."
It just seems like that would be common sense, doesn't it? You don't think you'll get sick, and you sure hope you won't, but since it's a pretty serious disease, and since the subway has lots and lots of people, wouldn't you just think that staying to yourself for a couple weeks was do-able, and going bowling wasn't really necessary?
(I ask this as someone who always catches colds when I spend lots of time in subway systems. And yes, I know it's a whole lot harder to spread Ebola than a cold, I think I'd manage to be that careful if I might be incubating Ebola.)
I'm thinking of applying for this special faculty position here. I might be a stretch. But again, I might not. I need to talk to some folks.
