Man With Deadly TB Strain – I am not making this up – Flies

But this case reveals that preventing someone from traveling is not easy to do. By the emerging accounts, county public-health authorities in Georgia were apparently reluctant, uncertain and unclear about when and how to stop someone with a particularly dangerous infection from traveling. They advised the TB patient not to travel, but CDC officials say the man left before they could put it in writing.

Why is it that every arrogant little bureaucrat with a fancy-ass TSA badge knows that I can’t bring my goddamn toothpaste on the plane, but nobody knows that someone with fucking tubercufuckinglosis should not fly? Why, instead of harrassing passengers who forgot to move their Chapstick from their purse to their Ziplock baggie, aren’t the Transportation, y’know, Security Administration asking us if we might possibly have any deadly airborne illnesses?
