Katy Conrad is a booker and producer with CBS This Morning, but conservatives quickly made fun of her on Twitter when she mocked Rand Paul’s medical opinion, as if he was a doctor. (Oops, he is — an opthalmologist, to be precise.)
It never hurts to Google search your ridicule targets. “Wait, is Rand Paul actually a doctor?” It might make more sense after you discover Rand Paul’s father Ron Paul is also a doctor. It’s easy to think tweets are so quick to dash off, and quick to vanish into the Internet ether, who needs research for a tweet? It’s tough to get noticed on something so basic, one of the first three or so biographical facts that would come up about Rand Paul.
Witnesses said police deployed tear gas and pepper spray to disperse large crowds. At least 14 were arrested. The Associated Press reports that 97 calls for service were placed to the department between 2 a.m. Saturday and 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
The chaos began Saturday afternoon, when several people were injured by thrown bottles near the school’s 1 Butler Court during a party thrown to celebrate the city’s annual Pumpkin Festival. As night fell, the crowds spread across town. Rioters were seen on a live video stream vandalizing and flipping over several parked cars.
An earlier statement from a school spokesperson acknowledged that the partiers included both students and visitors to the campus, adding that some incidents took place off-campus. She did not immediately reply to Boston.com’s request for comment.
“Over the past few days, a large number of out-of-town visitors have come to Keene for the Keene Pumpkin Festival. Subsequently, during the course of the evening on Friday, off-campus gatherings associated with the Keene Pumpkin Festival escalated at a number of locations around the city,” Kelly Ricaurte wrote in a statement provided to the Boston Globe.

Seriously, white people? At least Black people pretend to be outraged over police abuse when they vandalize and steal. Pumpkins?
Goodale Park is the home to an ever growing number of festivals, including the Gay Pride Parade and ComFest.
But a flyer that’s gone up around Clintonville is sending a less inclusive message.
It’s promoting the Straight White Guy Festival. It claims the festival will be held in Goodale Park in September.
Several pictures of the flyers tacked on telephone poles were posted on Twitter.
Local Homosexual activists are furious that such a festival implies straight, white males don’t suffer as much as homosexual, minorities and females pretend to. After all homosexuals earn on the average more than heterosexuals, and both minorities and women enjoy government-enforced benefits that whites males do not get. So it’s preposterous to assume the people who are constantly demonized on TV isn’t suffering. Right?
New guidelines for the treatment of Ebola expected to be issued Monday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will require healthcare workers to be completely covered up when treating patients for the virus and be monitored while donning and removing protective garb.
The new, more stringent guidelines have been developed as a response to two nurses at a Dallas hospital becoming infected with Ebola after treating Thomas Eric Duncan, who became the first person in the United States to die of the virus Oct. 8.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said those caring for Duncan were vulnerable because some of their skin was exposed. He said that earlier guidelines released by the CDC were based on those used by the World Health Organization for treatment in remote places remote places, often outdoors, and without intensive training for health workers.
Health officials had previously allowed hospitals some flexibility to use available covering when dealing with suspected Ebola patients. The new guidelines are expected to set firmer standards: calling for full-body suits and hoods that protect worker’s necks; setting rigorous rules for removal of equipment and disinfection of hands; and requiring a “site manager” to supervise the putting on and taking off of equipment.
