My anaconda will consider it
My anaconda has, upon review of the information presented with it’s partners, decided that it, in fact, does not. My anaconda apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks you for your time.
In regards to the panic that will inevitably spread in re the first case of ebola in the United States, watch this health care triage video. (Also discussed: the panic of enterovirus, which is the virus that caused my meningitis.)
As Dr. Amesh Adalja put it, ““Ebola outbreaks are stopped in their tracks when basic public health measures are in place … and the United States would not be a hospitable environment for something that spreads exclusively through blood and body fluids.”
Ebola IS a huge, growing public health problem in several nations in west Africa. Because it has hit health care workers particularly hard, there are fewer health workers and resources available in already poorly equipped nations. That’s a disaster not only because of ebola but also because it means fewer vaccinated children and more deaths from preventable illnesses like malaria and diarrhea. Panicking over ebola in the United States distracts from the real problem, which is the thousands of needless deaths in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea.
Let me tell you why I think this scene is so important.
When I first saw this scene, I thought, “Simon’s line is so out of character.”, because I remembered the scene in the pub. I remembered Simon’s look at Kieren when Kieren tried to calm the argument between Amy and Gary. I remember his eyes saying “Oh, really? You’re going to let him say that?”
So, obviously, this “leave it”, when you have this first scene in mind, is completely out of place.
But then I realised. Simon doesn’t want Kieren to stop fighting Gary. He is, most likely, happy to see Kieren standing up for himself. If it was anywhere else, at any other moment, Simon would have been glad to see that, probably would have backed Kieren up.
But this is Kieren’s house, he made Simon act “normal” for his parents. Simon knows all about the situation in Kieren’s home, the act he has to pull, the fragile balance that exists in the family.
And even though Simon firmly believes that what Kieren is doing is right, he doesn’t want to let it happen. He doesn’t want Kieren to blow the act, to risk scaring his family, losing it maybe. He wants to protect Kieren more than he wants to protect his beliefs.
There’s what he believes, and then there’s Kieren.

shout out to people who are scared to call others out, whose hands shake when they try to explain what’s wrong, whose throats threaten to close up with thoughts of ‘what if i’m just overreacting’, whose hearts are pounding out of their chests because they just stuck their necks out for their beliefs, who have lost friends and respect and safety for aligning themselves with causes
