It's amazing how we can get so hysterical about whatever the news publicizes, all the while ignoring the obvious in front of us. This is what you might call sitting on a whale, fishing for minnows. Sure Ebola is scary as the survival rate is under 10%. In Western Africa, where resources are scarce, it's wiping out whole villages. Here in the United States we cannot be complacent. But it is ironic that there is so much hype over a disease that has victims that can be counted on one hand, while we are killing ourselves in epidemic numbers with preventable diseases that are a result of poor lifestyle choices made possible by our prosperity.
