Missing the Point

        Gz Expat worries that if bird flu did become widespread, he might not be able to send the wife and kids home, what with all the talk about quarantines.  Instead, they'd be stuck in China, with its primitive medicine.

        Uh, guy, that's the point.  A quarantine is designed to stop people from traveling, for any reason, and thus stop them from spreading disease.  If you're worried, get the family out now.

        'But what if nothing goes happens?'  Then you bet on the wrong horse.  Life is full of uncertainty, you need to get used to it.  Hard old world, man, things are tough all over.  [Insert cliché of choice here.]
