I’m not in the cubicle farm so I’m not writing today.

Talk among yourselves or look around ye olde blog; there are probably one or two entries you missed. I suggest starting at the very first post, which occurred seven years ago last Thursday, and working your way forward.

By the time you get through the 9,705 other entries, I should be back.

Within a week or so, the Ebola “crisis” may be over before it ever started here.

It’s been almost two weeks since Thomas Duncan died and the only two people to have contracted the disease in the United States were two nurses who treated him and both are reportedly on the way to recovery. Over the weekend, a nurse in Spain, who also cared for an Ebola victim, was tested and declared Ebola free. Another aid worker, the one who went through it without publicity, was quietly released — Ebola free — from Emory University Hospital over the weekend.

If you’re keeping score, that’s two people out of 319 million residents of the United States.

The face of Ebola today might as well be Peter Pattakos, a Cleveland attorney who didn’t get it.

He spent 20 minutes in a bridal shop getting fitted with a tux the other day, the same bridal shop visited by Amber Joy Vinson, the nurse who took a flight to Cleveland from Dallas when she apparently showed Ebola symptoms.

“I thought, ‘Oh, that’s interesting,'” Pattakos tells the Cleveland Plain Dealer. And there any fear stopped.

“I didn’t exchange any bodily fluids with anyone, so I’m not worried about it,” he said. “I’m much more likely to be mistakenly killed by a police officer in this country than to be killed by Ebola, even if you were in the same bridal shop.”

“I wish people would freak out this much about climate change,” he said. “It’s one of those problems that’s real easy for the media to cover, rather than some of those other problems that people should be more concerned with.”

Did someone say climate change?

2014 is on track to be the warmest year recorded on earth, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. September’s average global temperature was 1.3 degrees above the 20th century average.

There are people who stand around and take video of a burning building. And there are people who run into burning buildings to rescue the people inside.

The guy in the blue hat, obviously, is the type of person to run into burning buildings because that’s what he did over the weekend in Fresno, California.

Having rescued Robert Wells, 73, the “man in the Dodger hat” left. Nobody got his name.

“As I got out of the car, this woman came up with this baby and said, ‘My dad is in there! My dad is in there!’ I didn’t know what to do. I felt so helpless,” Beth Lederach, who was driving by, told the Fresno Bee.

So she fired up the video camera and got a nation wondering who the hero is.

Despite the attention, he’s not in a hurry to come forward.
