POLITICAL ESSAYS
Losers - Part 18
`
`
April 25, 2005
(That's April)
`
New York Times [1]
`
Specialists Say 'Healers' in
Angola Are Helping to Spread
Deadly Virus
`
`
We are told that 222 Marburg-
virus deaths have occurred in
Uige province, north Angola.

We are told 11 such deaths
have occurred elsewhere in
Angola.
`
And even now--
`
"an average of three people
per day continue to die of
the virus a full month after
international teams arrived
in Angola to battle it."
`
So--
`
The Times quotes a WHO hemor-
rhagic fevers expert:
`
"I would say it is bit bi-
zarre that we still have
these high numbers per week."
`
Therefore---
`
BIZARRE FINGERPOINTING!
`
In the first paragraph of
the Times newsstory:
`
"...unorthodox [OH! OH!]
medical practices by local
[OH!] traditional [OH!]
healers may [DUH] be con-
tributing to the spread of
the deadly disease."
`
And to top it off--
`
In the last paragraph of
the Times story:
`
"When asked why it took a
month for Angolan health
authorities to send a sig-
nificant team of special-
ists to Uíge, [the head of
WHO's alert and response
operations] said only
that the authorities [one
guess: WHO big shots] had
been worried the epidemic
would spread to Luanda
[Angola's capital]...."
`
In conclusion--
`
GLORY FIRST!
`
`
But--
`
March 25, 2005
(Yes, that's March)
`
BBC News [2]
`
Ebola-like virus reaches
Luanda
`
"The Marburg virus...that
has killed 112 people in
Angola's northern province
of Uige, has reached the
capital, Luanda...."
`
Reconsidering--
`
LIES FIRST, LAST AND
ALWAYS.
