Headlines to heed

Oct 27, 2014

"Ebola enters its political phase," observes Anemonis Hartocollis  at the top of today's newsroom is the latest wrinkle in the Ebola saga. A quarantined Newark nurse blames Gov. Chris Christie for her plight, even as the governor gives the OK for her to finish her quarantine at home (2,429 shares). "To be fair to Gov. Christie, it's not like he forced that quarantined nurse to watch the Jets," notes Jim Aley with Bloomberg Businessweek.

Speaking of healthcare and politics, is the Affordable Care Act working? "Really important NYT feature today: How Obamacare is doing, point by point. Data, not hype or cant. What a concept," journalist Richard Perez-Pena praises.

And while we're talking politics, somehow a politician who's been dead since 2009 just weighed in on the New Hampshire Senate race. Oh, yes.

In other political pontifications, the Bush family is rallying around Jeb Bush in hopes of making him number 45. "Most of the Bush family (with one notable exception) has lined up behind a Jeb candidacy," NYT's David Joachim remarks. Click to find out who's the holdout.
