...But the Spencer scenario is a provocation. The germ trail, a sequence of familiar banalities, hits home. First, the apartment building: minds turn to door handles and elevator buttons. Next, the subway, including the L train, an essential interborough connector. Those of us fearless about gripping handrails might now think twice. Uber: the nifty new conveyance, abruptly associated with an alliterative plague. The High Line: the virus, like any tourist, hitting the hot spots on a tour of Bloombergian New York. Finally, the bowling: as a precaution, the parlor, called (evocatively) the Gutter, shut down, and a concert there was cancelled. You don’t have to be a germaphobe to have misgivings about the finger holes in bowling balls, but the mention of Ebola has the effect of a shark fin seen at the beach. Everybody out. The Ebowla jokes appeared early and often.
Did Spencer take the risk of infection too lightly, or was he acting rationally? Are we?
