The risk is the fear it is going to create with these two Ebola patients.

It has already started. People going to the emergency rooms frightened over the symptoms.

We know how this works. One cough, one sneeze, one person is affected and the symptoms won't show up for almost 3 weeks. Why did the CDC release this stuff? It is enough to make your wonder what is real and what isn't anymore.

"Whack the Hamas" ?? (Confession: title made me smile)

I agree, that one was priceless. In reality, I sure would love a chance to whack a few of those scumbags. They are evil, evil.

Hmmm...opinions?

Q, not sure what your opinion was on this? I hate seeing nobody had one after you went to all that trouble to type that out and ask for them.

I will give you mine. I support Israel, I am against Hamas and I hope Israel is successful.

But just because I do, doesn't mean I am going to go buy a game app to show support by playing a game app on my tablet or cell phone that bombs or kills one or the other because it entertains the cause.

Seriously, people feeling that by playing a game app that allows a person to kill virtual enemies is support for either side? LOL

I think that app drama was just a publicity stunt hatched by those selling the games to bring attention to those games and sparked a few knee jerks responses from a few. People will use political rhetoric for about anything these days. Just my opinion.

Oh,

Google has, however, removed:

Gaza Assault: Code Red, in which the player controls an Israeli drone that drops bombs on people and buildings from above

Whack the Hamas, in which the gamer is told to target members of Hamas as they emerge from tunnels and is described by its developer as "for fun and relaxation, for the people who are being killed every day by a terrorist group"

Bomb Gaza, in which the player attempts to kill militants but avoid civilian casualties, while listening to "Israel's theme music"

The games had attracted negative reviews from some other Android device owners before being deleted.

change of subject.

Several games relating to the Israel-Gaza conflict have been removed from Google's Android store and Facebook, but others remain.

Bomb Gaza - in which players control an Israeli military jet that attacks missile-firing Palestinian militants - is no longer available on the sites.

But Rocket Pride - which sees players attempt to outmanoeuvre Israel's Iron Dome missile defence system - is still available on Google Play.

Apple's iOS store features Iron Dome Missile Defense, released by Simon Rosenzweig on 30 July - however, its description is more vague, referring instead to an unnamed "enemy".

Google Play also features Rocket Pride by Best Arabic Games, in which the player is tasked with "supporting heroes besieged in the Gaza Strip from an oppressive occupier" by "controlling the resistance missiles and hitting the objectives assigned to them".

Opinions??

"Just kidding, I figured Joe would have sprung for coffee all around. "

Most likely. He was the one I wanted to meet most. Unfortunately his wife is feeling poorly again and they had to split.

If you pray, she could probably use one.

No, I only had coffee. I asked her for my check and she said Don't worry about it.
