I'm happy for Kaci that a judge agreed with her.

Re: Should I stop saying, "Hello." to women I encounter?

Honestly, I don't care either way. If someone greets me as we're walking by each other, that's fine, but I wouldn't think anything of it if that didn't happen.

Re: Ebola: Do you support mandatory quarantine?

To clarify, I would follow the CDC guidelines for self monitoring and quarantine. These are based on scientific evidence from studies of a well known virus, rather than the hot air of politicians pandering to an uninformed public in an election year. Yup. As for coverage, CNN has been covering it, ...

Re: Ebola: Do you support mandatory quarantine?

I would not participate in a quarantine either. I don't follow Kaci because I can't stand ANY of this over hyped ebola coverage, so I can't speak about whether she is a media grabber or obnoxious. What I do know is that ebola is not contagious until symptoms appear. There is absolutely no benefit t...

Re: How many pets do you have in bed?

Our two cats sleep with us every night, usually on my side of the bed. My husband laughs because rather than disturb them and move them out of the way, I squeeze myself into whatever space they're not taking up.

Re: Ebola: Do you support mandatory quarantine?

^If you're already volunteering your time - then you've already budgeted to for the the lack of pay. If quarantine is mandated as part of service, then budget for the whole darn time (and lack of pay) or don't dedicate yourself to the cause in the first place. Are you suggesting then that those who...

Re: Would you buy simulant stones for travel ER or Studs ?

I wouldn't bother buying travel jewelry. If I really didn't feel safe wearing my engagement ring, I'd probably leave it at home and wear a simple band.

Re: Ebola: Do you support mandatory quarantine?

Seriously! I don't really get her argument, it's hollow, considering she's got first hand experience AND is a nurse. Why should should get somehow different treatment?

Kenny, we could go round and round with this topic and not really ever see eye to eye. Sure, I'm all for being nice, but I believe in the science of this disease.

Re: Ebola: Do you support mandatory quarantine?

Hi, I don't think I understand why the 21 day quarantine would make volunteers less likely to go to help in Ebola stricken countries. I wouldn't mind it at all if it were me. I'd want to be under the care of those who knew how to treat it, if I should have the virus. I would consider it part of my ...

Re: Ebola: Do you support mandatory quarantine?

I don't support mandatory quarantines for the reasons Aoife stated, but I do support voluntary quarantine. I don't agree with vilifying Dr. Spencer for the activities he did once he returned home. He wasn't sick yet. Would I have chosen to do those same things? Probably not, but again, the general p...

Re: Ebola arrives in America tomorrow on a fancy private jet

I heard on CNN the other night that the first sign of ebola is a high fever, and when Dr. Spencer took his temp (as he had been doing 2x per day) and it was high, maybe 103 (?), that's when he called for help. Maybe the expert who said that the first sign of ebola is a high fever was wrong. All I kn...

Re: Ebola arrives in America tomorrow on a fancy private jet

Re: Just in time for XYZmas, Breaking Bad Action Figures

I doubt most kids look to action figures and toys as role models. I played with Voltron, Transformers, GI Joes, Barbies, AND My Little Ponies as a kid, and never did I want to be any of them. I never wanted to look like any of them. They were just toys, and sometimes they fought against good, somet...

Re: Women, don't ask for a raise. Trust karma.

I don't really agree with his advice, but it doesn't really bother me either. It's just his opinion, which everyone is entitled to, and I guess that I didn't read any more into it than that.

It would make instructive listening for anyone who can't quite understand how docs and other care-givers get infected.
