Dallas mayor Mike Rawlings said Ebola "may get worse before it gets better." "But," the public official promised, "it will get better."
"There are two things that I harken back to this. The only way that we are going to beat this is person by person, moment by moment, detail by detail. We have those protocols in place, the city and county, working closely with the CDC and the hospital. The second is we want to minimize rumors and maximize facts. We want to deal with facts, not fear. And I continue to believe that while Dallas is anxious about this and with this news this morning, the anxiety level goes up a level, we are not fearful and I'm pleased and proud of the citizens that I talk to day in and day out knowing that there is hope if we take care and do what is right in these details. It may get worse before it gets better. But it will get better."
The comments were given at a news conference in Dallas this morning announcing that another hospital worker in Dallas has been diagnosed with Ebola.

The RNC’s Site Selection Committee has recommended Cleveland, Ohio, as the host city of the 2016 Republican National Convention. Cleveland last held a national political convention in 1936, when Kansas governor Alfred Landon defeated Senator William Borah of Idaho for the Republican presidential nomination.
Fifty years after the Kennedy assassination, Main Street values trump political ideology Nov 25, 2013, Vol. 19, No. 11 • By DAVID DEVOSS
The Sunday after Kennedy was shot my dad and I drove downtown to Dealey Plaza. It was an apology of sorts since my parents had refused to let me skip school to see the presidential motorcade on November 22. We were standing on the grassy knoll between the Old Red Courthouse and the Triple Underpass when our neighbors from across the street—a man and his teenage son my age—walked up with a noose and began exhorting bystanders to go lynch Lee Harvey Oswald.

LeBron James, who choked away the NBA championship with another dismal fourth-quarter performance on Sunday, is the most despised athlete in America, possibly the world. No, make that the solar system. I, like most basketball fans I know, rejoiced when the Dallas Mavericks beat the Heat last Sunday. It was the triumph of the team over a gaggle of hired guns, the triumph of a bunch of selfless unknowns over a galaxy of selfish superstars.
Schadenfreude in the NFL.3:25 PM, Nov 9, 2010 • By VICTORINO MATUS
Having just been to Dallas this past weekend, I can tell you no one, and I mean no one, wants to talk about NFL football down there. They'll talk sports—including the Rangers and college football—but there will be no mention of the Dallas Cowboys, America's Team. On Sunday I visited an old college buddy and his family who live in a Dallas suburb, and not once do I recall seeing a Cowboys flag hanging from a front porch or out of a car window. (My friend sported a Notre Dame sweatshirt and said he couldn't be happier to see his home team losing. Like many, he has an almost visceral hatred toward the owner, Jerry Jones, for reasons too numerous to list in this blog.)

The New York papers were crazy yesterday over a little incident with Rex Ryan, coach of the almost-AFC-champion Jets. While in Florida for Super Bowl week, Ryan attended an MMA fight where during a half-time interview he told the raucous crowd, "Hey, I just want to tell everybody in Miami here: Hey we're coming to beat you twice next year." Later, while being heckled by some rowdy Dolphins fans, he flipped them off. And then the situation got weird
