Gretchen Carlson's "Common Sense" Regarding The Quarantine Of Health Care Workers Returning From Africa

I don't get it.   This from the NY Times:  "The nurse who was quarantined after returning from treating Ebola patients in West Africa has given the State of Maine until Thursday to let her move freely, setting up what could be a test case of whether state quarantines are legal.  The nurse, Kaci Hickox, 33, who was confined first by New Jersey when she came back to the United States and then by Maine [now threatens to sue the state of Maine]."

Gretchen Carlson Gives The Real Story
So, I give the perfunctory thanks to the nurse for helping her fellow man in Africa, putting herself in danger.  But now this same person doing so much good works and sacrifice in Africa [for months] helping Ebola patients, thinks it is like torture to follow a 21 day quarantine issued by the governors, in the comfort of her home back in the United States.  Just because she was selflessly willing to put herself in health danger for months treating Ebola patients in Africa, doesn't give her the right to selfishly put Americans in danger when she comes back home, to be unwilling to follow a reasonable 21 day quarantine.  That doesn't make any sense to me.

Oh, by the way the same 21 day quarantine that our heroic troops being sent to Africa will face before they can come back home, and they supposedly weren't even in contact with any Ebola patients like the nurse was.

Gretchen Carlson covered this topic on her show, "The Real Story" on the Fox News Channel.  She did it in her "My Take" segment that she entitled "Common Sense."  I agreed with everything she said in her "common sense" take.  Bravo, Gretchen!
