As I no longer consider myself a resident of Amarillo, I suppose I could be quiet about this.
But, c’mon, y’all. You know me.
I just caught up with today’s main editorial in the Amarillo Globe-News and once again, the execrable stupidity, in this case, is a public health hazard. The editorial is trying to draw an unintelligible parallel between auto accidents and a dangerous disease, thus, “Compared to recent national media-overblown reports of deadly illnesses such as Ebola (fewer than 10 people were quarantined in Amarillo from West Africa in January 2015 in order to be monitored for Ebola virus symptoms), the most dangerous thing most of us will ever come into contact with is a steering wheel and a gas pedal.”
