Dear Diary: I hugged an Ebola patient today -- I was assured by my Ebola czar that the patient had fully recovered and was of no danger to anyone any more. But it took some courage, on my part, I can tell you, especially since my Ebola Czar knows less about Ebola now than Rasputin did then. I have since been on constant alert for the slightest suggestion of nausea, fever or diarrhea. Thank goodness I do not have to ride the subway, or go bowling, like common folk. Sir Barack the Brave...I really like that moniker. But enough about me.
