Well, you will get your wish, because he will die (whether he deserves to or not).

Of course, you are going to die too. We all will -- no way out of that one.

I don't think he was clearly told he was infectious before he left the US and I can't really blame him for wanting to get back to his own country before being quarantined. I don't think he handled the situation particularly well, but I suspect most of us in the same situation wouldn't have handled it much better.

Sweet irony indeed.

What's being done to the guy in Arizona is unacceptable. But this guy, screw him I say, flying all over, doing his level best to spread peace, love, and TB.

I saw an interview with him, and he claimed that he didn't know he was very contagious. The CDC sent him a letter "strongly advising" him not to fly, but he never got the letter because it was sent out the day before he left for Greece.

He undoubtedly handled the situation poorly after he found out he needed to get back to the U.S. I don't know what I would do either...

TB Guy Tops Bush in New Poll

Posted June 6, 2007

In the latest sign of erosion for President George W. Bush's job approval rating, a new poll released today reveals that Mr. Bush is now less popular among the American people than the so-called "TB Guy," Atlanta attorney Andrew Speaker.

While the president's approval numbers have been in a virtual free-fall in recent months, few political insiders expected him to be trounced by Mr. Speaker, who has been accused of exposing airline passengers to tuberculosis.

Additionally, the poll results are historic in another way, since they mark the first time that a sitting president has been deemed less popular than a quarantined disease carrier.

But at the White House today, official spokesman Tony Snow tried to put a positive spin on the numbers, saying that Mr. Speaker's poll numbers received an artificial "bounce" as a result of all of the press coverage he has received in recent days.

"If President Bush had been quarantined for spreading tuberculosis around the world, his numbers would be right up there with the TB Guy's," Mr. Snow claimed.

Now there's a ringing endorsement.
