I just really liked the headline from this Washington Post article.

Syracuse University bravely saves students from exposure to journalism

Michel du Cille, a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist, was recently in Liberia to cover the Ebola outbreak. He is back in the United States now, and he was supposed to go to Syracuse University — home to a very prestigious journalism school — to talk about what it was like covering this public-health crisis, documenting and illuminating a horrific epidemic that has killed more than 4,000 people.

However, du Cille — a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist, which I should really say three times, because he has won the award three times — was not able to speak to the students, because he was told not to come to the campus, because he was in a place where there is Ebola and that freaks some people out.

See, after du Cille returned from Liberia, he has been following the various self-monitoring guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That meant avoiding any potentially infectious contact with people, taking his temperature very often and watching for any symptoms during the 21-day period when it is generally accepted that Ebola symptoms, if they show up, are going to show up. He has been careful, and he has not exhibited any symptoms, which is important, because public-health officials say that people with Ebola are only contagious when they are exhibiting symptoms.
