Only if the object can be referred to as him, them, or her.

Good question.

Probably because he's a hero to about 25% of Americans. BTW did you know that about 25% of Americans are retarded?

It would be better that millions were struck ill by a disease.

The last thing you want is to have evil big government orgs like WHO intrude into their lives.

The Lancet study said plastic surgery patients had carried a new class of superbug from South Asia to Britain.

I hope that face life was worth it... unnecessary surgery FTL. Breibart FTL.

Poor quality journalism.

The bug is not even named. Is this a cockroach? Ok yeah they did refer to it as a bacteria, but NDM-1 is New Delhi Metallo-beta-lactamase (NDM-1)which is the enzyme that allows the bacteria to be resistant to antibiotics. Is it a Staph, or Strept or Proteus or what?

Hasn't Breitbart been proven to flat-out make shiat up? Why support that kind of "journalism"?

Can we please stop linking to Breitbart for AP/Reuters (or in this case, AFP) articles ? I refuse to give him the page hits. I'd click on a WND, or even a *gag* Human Events link before I'd visit his site. Either subby is a frequent greenlight-ee who gets all his 'news' off of Breitbart (and should therefore consider voluntary commitment) or mods are greenlighting the Breitbart links to wire copy stories preferentially. Either way it stinks to high heaven.

Just GISed it. That's what they're calling it. Either it's a bacillus or that's a stock photo.

This is not good.

Didn't read this link, but I know the "bug" (really a plasmid) they're discussing. Not the end of the world, people. Think of MRSA. Is this spreading like wildfire? Is it significantly increasingly the infection and mortality rate of simple surgeries? No, it's just a new complication that needs to be addressed. It's a concern, but not an epidemic.

This has the added problem of being spread from bacteria to bacteria and isn't limited to one strain, but it's note likely to spread out of control, just a new complication to be addressed.

Also, phage therapy. If this starts becoming a serious issue rather than the rare, specific cases in specific regions thing, you'd better believe phage therapy is going to be more widely used in treating drug-resistant strains. So it's not like it's traditional anti-biotics or death. Humanity has other, effective, options.

I'm surprised that Breitbart can even talk with Pamela Geller's dick in his mouth.

All that was probably in the original article before he chopped it up and changed the meaning.

Came to mention that it's a plasmid, not a 'bug,' the fact that it is a plasmid is actually much more cause for alarm, too.

It's actually whom: See above.

Wrong. A "Who" is a creature. Its like saying, Horton hears a tiger. Instead of tiger, substitute Who, the name of the creatures in the story.

Now, if Horton heard someone but didn't know who, then yes, whom is correct. But that is not the case.

The link's already identified as Breitbart . . . would have saved you the time to just say "Oh, it's Breitbart, PASS."

In summary, fark that guy.

No, WHAT is a Philadelphia radio station. WHO is calling for monitoring this new superbug.

I've always gone by if you can substitute 'he' or 'she' in a sentence and have it make sense, then you use who. Otherwise, use whom.
