The news media are stoking EBOLA fears. They start by saying EBOLA is very difficult to transmit. Then they list all the activities of the latest victim as though those activities might lead to the spread of the virus. Please.

Some parts of Colorado want to secede from Colorado and some parts of California want to secede from California.

Michelle Malkin’s column appearing in the local paper, The Spectrum, has produced letters to the editor both for and against. Recently I resigned my monthly column, unpaid, and shortly thereafter the paper dropped the Malkin column, paid for I presume.

If losing a liberal column caused the newspaper to drop Malkin to preserve a balance, I am pleased to have contributed to the change. I doubt that they were related.
