Fear is the best bioweapon. Fear and surprise. No, wait, that's the Spanish Inquisition. Just fear, then.
Stop it. Just stop it. Ebola isn’t a potential weapon for terrorists. It isn’t, as reported by Forbes and the Daily Mail, a low-tech weapon of bioterror for ISIS. It isn’t the final refuge of a lone wolf on a suicide mission, in the words of Fox News. It isn’t...

HWMNBN told Dish he was cancelling her service because he was putting his mother in a home.  He failed to mention she was moving into the home next door.
