I know one needs to be cautious in the use of quarantines but sometimes it’s better to be safe than sorry — which is why I’m calling on President Obama to use an executive order to quarantine the governors of Maine, New York and New Jersey at the U. S. Naval Base on Guantanamo Bay until the Ebola panic subsides.
Their hysteria is probably more contagious than the Ebola virus itself. The governors could be kept in comfortable quarters, given psychiatric counseling and then returned to normal life when they were no longer presenting symptoms of irrational paranoia.
We have to balance their civil rights against the need for public order — and we have an obligation to the men themselves.
You just have to look at them to know they need help.
