Nathan Wolfe

Ebola isn't a respiratory virus. It doesn't spread through the airborne route. So it's not likely to spread like wildfire around the world and kill tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people. That's what I think of as the next big one.

But as they say, the third time's a charm, because my mom and dad adopted me and took me into their home where I was raised in a family full of love.
Rodney Atkins
