Most of the arguments favoring Will's position has to do with whether he is technically correct that a "snotlet" [my cute term for a droplet of snot] can conceivably infect someone. These arguers do not seem to care about whether this is actually likely to occur, just whether such things are in the realm of possibility, no matter how remote.
Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist George Will implied in an interview that Ebola may be airborne. He’s no scientist or public-health expert, but he’s fueling conspiracy theorists.

Why are the people in a position to save a kid's life with loose change asking my broke ass for it?

what utter bs!
"Social Justice" simply and obviously means fair and equitable outcomes in matters involving social interchange, and outside the realm of criminal justice.

This lame attempt to redefine simple English words and manipulate their meanings is an old old trick of propagandists.

wheelchair users -- real ones -- will recognize this as the type of situation we deal with every day, as we HOPE the opportunistic able-bodied won't create an issue out of it.

Story
Introduction
Robert Martin was the original editor of "Fangoria", the magazine of horror and exploitation film, where he became known to the readership as "Uncle Bob." Martin steered the publication from 1979 to 1986 -- the slasher-film boom years. Martin's so-called "acting" was a by-product of his career as a journalist, and included bit part in Nick Zedd's Geek Maggot Bingo, a prominent role as a wheelchair-bound geek in Madhouse , the first video made by the band Anthrax (who were Fangoria readers), directed by Amos Poe, and a zombie walk-on in George Romero's Day of the Dead. A collaborative relationship with writer-director Frank Henenlotter resulted in two produced screenplays, Frankenhooker and Basket Case 3: The Progeny, with Martin writing initial drafts from Henenlotter's detailed outlines. In 1994, Martin, under the name "Ed Flixman" became editor of "Sci-Fi Entertainment", the "Official Magazine" of the Sci-Fi Channel, and continued in that capacity through October of 1996. His column of film news continued to run in that magazine, until an argument with the editor regarding remarks in his column that the new editor feared might incur the wrath of the Sci-Fi Channel. In December of 1996, Martin relocated from his native New York to Los Angeles, where he mostly worked as an Internet techie, but also wrote press materials for a few films, most notably "The People vs. Larry Flynt," in which his description of Flynt as "the last champion of the sexual revolution" stirred the wrath of Gloria Steinem, generating considerable press for the film. (In Martin's original, the phrase had been "the last champion of a failed sexual revolution.") As of January, 2006, he was working as a blackjack dealer in Las Vegas, but a stroke left him incapable of handling cards & chips...he remains in Vegas, occasionally indulging his weakness for gambling, but mostly scrambling for money one way or another.
