Welll - that episode sucked as the ususal "sound bites" always do. Not worth watching; towed the CDC line, had a CDC official on the phone... 70 - 80% of people "see a rash", etc. JeezaLoiuza... WHY????? IT IS 2009, WHY ARE WE STILL FIGHTING THIS *&^% ??????

I am tired of being angry.... what do we do?
