News Headline: “Atlanta hospital receives hate mail for treating aid workers struck by the Ebola virus.”
As the search continues for any activity anywhere that doesn’t attract enraged e-mails from somewhere.
News Item: “U.S. Ebola doctor gives only available serum to fellow patient.”
Spare a thought or two for Dr. Kent Brantly when next you have doubts the human race might be worth saving.
N.F., a Chicago reader, regarding an item that noted Michele Bachmann was now theorizing that President Obama planned medical experimentation on child refugees, writes:
“You wrote that some spiders are more ‘poisonous’ than others. A toxin injected with a bite is ‘venom.’ Spiders are venomous, not poisonous.”
You are correct.
QT regrets the error.
Spiders are venomous.
Michele Bachmann is poisonous.
