Today’s category: selfish pricks who know they’re infected with tuberculosis and fly commercial anyway, disregarding the warnings of health officials.
“I’m a very well-educated, successful, intelligent person,” the man, who declined to give his name, was quoted in the newspaper interview as saying. “This is insane to me, that I have an armed guard outside my door, when I’ve cooperated with everything other than the whole solitary-confinement-in-Italy thing.”
Tough duty that, confinement in Italy. Gitmo sounds downright cushy in comparison. Has this nimrod has given any thought to the trouble and expense he’s created, or the people he put at risk (however slim that risk might be)? Okay, the odds are that he hasn’t thought about it at all. But you have to wonder if this exercise in solipsism has impressed his new wife. Note to the blushing (for good reason) bride: He’s all yours, honey. Good luck with that.
