For those deeply concerned about the Ebola virus and who want to know more, there is no better book out there than “The Hot Zone” by Richard Preston. It’s by far the most terrifying yet informed book on the subject I’ve come across. Quip: Cops …

I think if I get one more phone call or one more piece of mail I will either not vote or I will vote for the ones who did not bother me so much. I’ll be snuggling my 22-month-old closer as I pray for the …
