Somehow, after reading about some cameraman who has come down with Ebola, vague memories- about like, every photogenic white chick ever, who wandered off and created months of wall-to-wall coverage about them being missing- began to surface.
Eureka, I thought, we need a blonde chick with Ebola!
It has all the hallmarks of a successful media/propaganda campaign. Nightly photo-collage of college photos, maybe a little footage of her puking in a public place, followed by a media vigil outside some American hospital. Tune in, night after night, to see if she lives or dies.
And it is entirely believable to boot, since American women have begun to make wandering off into dangerous places a habit.
