I will never understand why people with drug-resistant TB travel on airplanes. I understand legally, but not morally and epidemiologically, why they aren't somehow quarantined until they show some sort of common sense. (Do you look both ways before you cross the street, sir? Do you cook your meat all the way through? Do you cut away from yourself? Excellent, you may leave quarantine now.)

To endanger other people like that, to put other people at risk and know you're doing it.... To put it eloquently, how much of a fucking jackass are you?

As a person who studied TB enzymes and infection routes for a summer research project, I can certainly say that "fucking jackass" pretty much covers it.

I mean, what part of "airborne illness" don't they understand? And so many people can have latent TB, not developing it until later, not too mention the new and horrible resistance it could acquire by fighting off 300+ new immune systems.

I hope they're just supremely stupid or something, because otherwise I think the word JAIL sounds pretty good.
