"Here is what I don't understand. These Dr's go down there like they are a god sent from heaven knowing that the Ebola Virus is extremely serious. Why did they not wear CDC full clothing with masks etc... Look this video it looks like they are ready to clean a washroom lol...

""Can you swim across Lake Erie if its so easy?" Well, if I have twenty people watching my back, then sure I can only if I don't have what it takes, then I may quit earlier just like she did. She was pulled out the minute the rescuers noticed she may not be able to handle it anymore. Let's have her swim across these lakes with no rescuers and with absolutely no floatation device or equipment to help save her life in which case she can't just decide to quit early unless she also decides to drown but the way she did it with her ready to be rescued at any moment (should she not have what it takes to finish it (and as we all saw that she didn't have what it takes)), anyone can do it.
