Tom Tomorrow (Dan Perkins) provides a tour of the Phantasmagoria aka 2014 with the five scariest things that have caused clenched guts all over the nation. Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF) is the latest of horrible possibilities that await. The most recent Ebola-scare here where this blogger sits shivering was a guy who awoke with a low-grade fever and rushed to an ER and reported himself infected with the dread virus. Of course, he hadn't traveled to West Africa nor had he been anywhere near a possibly infected person, but he was in the grips of panic. The guy was sent home with assurances that his Ebola test was negative. If this is (fair & balanced) collective obsessional behavior, so be it.
