As many of my friends and colleagues know, I’ve been writing a fair bit on Ebola in West Africa recently. After a few years of running this blog, like, five years ago, I grew weary of the regular updates, but now I think I need to come out of hibernation and revive some of the commentary. I have another piece coming out in Slate later today. I’ll repost that here for readers, possibly adding commentary.
Frankly, I’m reticent to return to the blogosphere, as there simply isn’t enough time in the day; but the Ebola crisis is urgent enough, and also reflective of the tremendous and sometimes hostile power of nature, that this seems like an appropriate place to offer cogent, somewhat more theoretical, commentary on the issues.
