Letter: Slogans won’t stop the spread of Ebola

Slogans won’t stop the spread of Ebola

President Obama’s refusal to restrict travel to and from Ebola stricken areas is like telling people it is safe to drive a vehicle without doors or seat belts. Obama, in using the same argument he uses for Ebola, would say that the likelihood of anyone swerving and falling out of a moving vehicle without doors or seat belts is very low.

Sloganeering may work to mesmerize an audience of Obama devotees into believing that Ebola is contained. But sloganeering will not stop the stampeding Ebola virus from spreading its deadly message of contagion, which it can do without the aid of a teleprompter.
