So, I’m trying to understand this


We won’t stop all flights from countries in West Africa where the Ebola virus is rapidly spreading. We can’t control our border with Mexico, and we just barely try.

But Mexico, yes Mexico, manages to somehow stop entire cruise ships from landing at a tourist destination because a passenger is in quarantine because he may have handled an Ebola patient’s lab specimens.

The cruise ship carrying a Texas health-care worker who “may have” handled lab specimens from Dallas Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan is headed back to the United States after Mexican authorities failed to grant permission for the ship to dock off the coast of Cozumel, according to a Carnival spokeswoman.

The Carnival Magic had been waiting off the Mexican coast since Friday morning for its scheduled port visit. Mexican authorities still hadn’t given clearance by noon, so the ship continued to its home port of Galveston, Tex., where it was due back on Sunday, according to Carnival.

That’s right. Mexico has tighter control of who gets in than we do, and Mexico is being proactive to prevent Ebola from reaching their country.

Meanwhile, we get political hack Ron Klain, who looks nothing Kevin Spacey, to take charge of our Ebola control efforts. Let me repeat, there is no need for alarm. Everything is under control.

By the way, doesn’t the story about the cruise ship make you feel good about vacation travel? So where is everybody going for Thanksgiving?
