Why?

O’Hare, one of the world’s busiest airports, is a destination for travelers from the Ebola-stricken countries of West Africa, so Chicago media are beginning to give us stories of passengers vomiting, of endless protocols and hazmat suits, of task forces, of health professionals screening and isolating travelers, etc. Sooner or later, we will be hearing of people coming in with Ebola, of the spread of this deadly infection among Americans.

The question is, Why? Why are we allowing this? Why are we spending so much? (And who is expected to pay for all this?) Why are we putting other people’s lives at risk?

Protecting the public health should not be a partisan issue.
