This Is A Little Scary

The bill gives the Public Health Commissioner the discretion to respond to an outbreak of the kind that's going on in Mexico. To close or evacuate buildings, to enter private property, isolate or quarantine people.
What was it that Rahm Emanuel said? "Rule One: Never allow a crisis to go to waste. They are opportunities to do big things." And Hillary Clinton? "Never waste a good crisis." Can't help but wonder if the federal government will follow suit.
