What was scary was that a case of airborne ebola broke out in the US. 
What if it had been fatal in humans?  You would probably not be here to
reply to this post, heh.  What is scary is the "what if" questions.  It's
not what has happened, it's what could happen, and what is innevitably
going to happen when the population of humans gets to big.
