'TB Patient ID'd As Atlanta Attorney, 31'

Dude's a lawyer? A personal injury lawyer? And he did this? And he didn't think it would be a problem?

To quote a Weekend Update feature - Really?

And he went out of his way to fly despite being told not to? Really.

It was while they were in Rome that he learned further U.S. tests had determined his TB was the rare, extensively drug-resistant form, far more dangerous than he knew. Officials told him turn himself over to Italian health officials and not to fly on any commercial airlines.

Instead, on May 24, he flew from Rome to Prague on Czech Air Flight 0727, then flew to Montreal aboard Czech Air Flight 0104 and drove into the U.S., according to CDC officials.
Gee, he didn't fly to the US directly, instead he flew a non-US carrier and then drove (no passport required kids!) into the U.S.

Maybe I'm overthinking it, but it seems to me like that kind of out-of-the-waying it extra-proves he knew he shouldn't have been doing what he was doing and that a US airline and US border patrol might now to watch for him. No worries! Let the Canucks take the hit! Who really likes the Quebecoise anyway?
