Our old friends
Coroner Mark Young has been swamped by calls stemming from a report on an anti- immigrant Web site that posted erroneous information about a man's death at Montrose Memorial Hospital.This story was spread by an old friend from our Kobach days: Glenn Spencer. This is one of the people whose vigilante gangs have been implicated in deaths of immigrants in border areas.The Web site, citing a “reliable source,” posted an item Wednesday that said a Mexican man had died at the hospital and suggested Ebola virus was to blame.
However, it wasn't Ebola at all. It was a strep bacteria that is “not contagious and extremely rare.”
What will we tell the children?
