Dallas Ebola case spurs concern about hospital readiness – The Washington Post

A Teachable Moment? This is NOT what we want to hear:

CDC officials acknowledged that widespread hospital awareness didn’t kick in until the recent case in Dallas.“We let our guard down a little bit,” said Abbigail Tumpey, a CDC spokeswoman, referring to the country’s health-care systems. “We as a health-care system have to make sure not to let our guard down and be vigilant that patients with Ebola could show up at any U.S. health-care facility. . . . Now that we’ve seen this happen, we know now that we need to do more to make people feel prepared.”

She added, “We realized this week that this is a teachable moment, and despite the guidance we have sent out [to hospitals], people don’t necessarily understand how to implement it.”

College Students Fail to Name a Single U.S. Senator | CNS News

How can our republic survive with this?

When asked if they could name a SINGLE U.S. senator, the students blanked.  Also, very few knew that each state has two senators.  The guesses were all over the map, with some crediting each state with twelve, thirteen, and five senators.
