What if it was called Globola? Or Gunbola?

Sometimes it's not necessary for me to add a word of commentary. I submit to you Exhibit A: "@ArtByAlida: Today's Climate Funny. "What if #climatechange was called Globola?" pic.twitter.com/VGveVW6ce0" LoL @frankejames — Janet Webb (@JanetNorCal) October 24, 2014 Next, directly from the Los Angeles Times letters to the editor, is Exhibit B, because our voices matter: Follman notes that guns kill 30,000 people in the U.S. annually. And nary a peep is heard. Can you imagine if those were 30,000 U.S. deaths from Ebola every year? The roar would be heard from shore to shore. Elizabeth Keranen, Bakersfield

The GOP Systematically Defunded America Into Unpreparedness

  Now we know what happens when we elect spite and ignorance to Congress and beyond. If you had to guess how many upper echelon, budget-busting hospital beds were open for infectious disease treatment across the country, would it be fairly accurate given how much we have learned about Ebola these last weeks?
