11/03/14 With each passing day we can see the irrational fear of an Ebola epidemic becoming the bread and butter of politicians feeding on our fear of death.

Boxers and politicians are skilled at finding what’s vulnerable then using it to their advantage. Yes, Ebola is a horrible disease, but it killed fewer people in the United States than folks falling off their roof, golfers being electrocuted by holding a nine-iron during a thunderstorm and maybe even trainers killed by elephants.

So why the hysteria? See my article “What Makes You Think You’ll Live Forever?
