With the Death of a Baby … Ebola’s Entry … into Mali

Enlightening academic rhetoric: When does an epidemic become pandemic? It
depends on who you ask. So WHO (World Health Org.); is Ebola … pandemic?

Between 550,000 and 1.4 million people in West Africa could be
infected with the Ebola virus … come January.

That alarming news was published last month and is according to a study
by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

A million and a half infections in West Africa translates (at current rates) to nearly
a million deaths from the Ebola virus … come January.

The death rate in the Ebola outbreak has risen to 70 percent and there could be
10,000 new cases a week in two months … WHO warns … grimly.

HIV vis-a-vis Ebola; the former leads to an excruciatingly painful and lingering death;
the latter to an excruciating … but relatively rapid … death.

A sky-high fever, bleeding from the eyes, nose, mouth and ears and rectum; the Ebola
virus is highly virulent and that’s not to mention its explosive … diarrhea.

WHO is treating this case as an emergency for the deceased baby traveled
by bus before she died and up to 300 people … may have exposed.

So … WHO (World Health Org.); when do the various Ebola epidemics …
become … world-widely … a pandemic?

To my Sisters … and … to my Brothers

In reality neither boy, nor father, nor biological brother (but to one) am I; however,
to more than seven billion citizens … I am … brother.

Brother to more than seven billion is chachomanopapa. He writes to brothers
and sisters, as he would have them … do unto him …their brother.

Brothers and sisters that share space on a planet that gets smaller by the minute.
Brothers and sisters: Let’s seize the day, and every minute … in it.

Seize the day and every minute in it. Would that we abnegate our nationalities
in order to best revere … and exalt … our humanity.

Lives are, in surreal reality, routinely disrupted by war or catastrophic illness;
but what an inconvenience, were football season rendered … meaningless.

What a specious species are we! Ebola seemed far and remote. Al-Baghdadi
seemed similarly, far away … we rationalized … delusionally.

Man-oh-man! What a specious species are we! Wrapped in complacency, we
live our illusions; one such delusion is: … THAT won’t happen … to ME!

What a difference mere moments can make! A virulent Ebola virus, in nonfiction,
competes with al-Baghdadi … its counter-part … human.

On ‘Mom’ … aka … Mother Earth (III)

Our planet; “Mom”, you might call her, needs that the denizens she selflessly
supports atop her back and cling precariously
from her every surface, shit or get off the pot! Her selfish stewards thanklessly
aid and abet that … from Mom … stolen, be … her bounty.

No, we haven’t lived up to our part of the bargain; worse yet, we’re dangerously
unaware of the bargain’s existence; and what’s even
worse; what passes for the education of Mom’s latest legatees is but an unholy
pot-luck … instilling all too little … of precious … acumen.

Arthur Everman is a wannabe. While no seer, prophet nor surely, an intellectual,
he’s been a keen observer and learned enough to know
to trust man sparingly, to trust God absolutely and to read … writings on the walls.
It is absolutely vital … that we all … aspire … to do so.

It is vital that we all aspire to do so; trusting God absolutely, men sparingly,
reading between the lines of the writings on the walls and so wanting to be
a steward of Mom’s bounty and brother and sister to our cousins that we
become pioneering visionaries …abnegating nationality … in favor of … humanity.

History, the Status Quo and Prophesy (III)

The Balkanization of Pangaea reflects many thousands of years of hostilities
and countless rivers of bloodshed … too much of it … unnecessarily.

Allah/God/Jehovah/Yahweh’s people are all of us notwithstanding that some of us
feel that they, and they only … enjoy … a ‘most favored’ … status.

Ever more disagreeably disagreeing in this tragi-comic ‘reality’, The Big Three,
Muslims, Christians and Jews … may yet reconsider … albeit … belatedly.

But history, the status quo and prophesy mitigate mightily against the possibility
of plurality … coming to the rescue of a sovereign-based … humanity.

The rise to notoriety of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State and the Caliphate
via a magnetic attraction for disaffected misogynists … raises … stakes.

Alas, we homo sapiens (we auto-denominated ‘wise’ (wo)men), are, all too sadly
a seemingly … supremely stupid … and specious … species.

On the other hand, we have the keys to our cells (and our brains) in our hands.
The internet … and a world-wide web … will help us … to understand.

The internet … and a world-wide web … will help us … to understand. Surreally
though, webs and nets, however strong, shall yield to prophesy … eventually.

We are the Almighty’s Reality TV

Allah/God/Jehovah/Yahweh’s people are all of us notwithstanding that some of us
feel that they, and they only … enjoy … a ‘most favored’ … status.

The rise to notoriety of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State and the Caliphate
via a magnetic attraction for disaffected … misogynists … takes the cake.

It is proof positive that we are created in His or Her image. For if (s)he, is surreally
anything like us, then (s)he and the heavenly hosts … love … reality TV.

Ever more disagreeably disagreeing in this tragi-comic ‘reality’, The Big Three,
Muslims, Christians and Jews … may yet reconsider … albeit … belatedly.
