Maybe our government was right. Maybe all the geniuses they’ve been trotting out recently really do know what they’re talking about.

Since Ebola began to spread, the fear has been the jump to the United States and then it’s all over but the dying. But, at least so far, the disease has been harder to contract than we’ve been warning.

Heck, they’ve even discovered a vaccine in Canada that has been collecting dust for 10 years. A joint venture between the company NewLink and the Canadian government developed the vaccine a decade ago and just shelved it for lack of interest. It just wasn’t needed.

The vaccine prevents infection if given before exposure and increases survival chances when administered after exposure. It was tested on monkeys and had a 100% success rate. I guess it was just one of those, “Gee, I forgot we had it,” moments in Canada, eh. The vaccine is now being rushed through human clinical trials and may be ready by year end.

In the meantime, despite the evidence that Ebola doesn’t seem to spread so easily, Americans are understandably freaking out. I can’t blame us for that. Every time this virus enters a new host it mutates, to some extent, and no one knows the eventuality of it. So naturally people are alarmed.Spencer

So when some moron who should’ve known better gets infected it’s doubly alarming. This Dr. Craig Spencer in New York City was utterly irresponsible and assuming he pulls through, he should be brought up on charges of public endangerment or the like.

But, one might say, he passed all the “rigorous” pre and post flight tests from Guinea to Belgium to New York City. That should make us feel better.

As a doctor, he should’ve known better and self quarantined until he was sure. But no, he came back and began crisscrossing the city from Harlem where you took a sweaty three-mile run to taking the subway to Manhattan for lunch at the Meatball Shop and coffee shop in Greenwich Village to the several trains and subways he took to get to the Gutter Bowling Alley to meet his girlfriend.Gutter bowling alley

Now, I’m glad there are doctors like Spencer who risk their lives traveling to Africa to help those poor people, but it would be great if he had the same empathy or caring for his fellow citizens.

Even if no one becomes infected by coming in contact with Spencer, he has literally threaten the lives and livelihoods of many. Store owners are losing money, having to close their doors until they’re told it’s safe to reopen. Even after the bowling alley was cleared to reopen, some took to Facebook expressing doubt they would ever return. If you had your choice, would you choose the Ebowling Alley over another one?

So, as the old question goes, “where do I go to get my reputation back,” sure applies here. Even if nothing else occurs, the small-business owners definitely took a financial hit. Time will tell how much, but it was completely unnecessary and irresponsible.

Normally, I hold slip and fall attorneys in contempt, but I smell a civil lawsuit against this doctor for damages to those businesses and I’d be all for that.

    Me, too, and I’m as disdainful of the parasitic ambulance chasers as anyone. Normally I’d put them in a basket with Sharpton. But this doctor ought to have been treated in the prison hospital or be moved there once confirmed free of ebola.

    Criminal negligence because he knew better.
