Ebola Manikins

The largest Oktoberfest outside of Bavaria launched today, and the celebrants are out in photographic array; I was was going to blip one of those subjects.

And then driving home I saw this store window and my breath was sort of sucked out of me by (what seemed to be like) Ebola Manikins. The death toll in West African already exceeds 4000, and cases (and deaths) have now shown up in Europe and North America. Fear is rampant, and these three have on their protective masks and gloves as they attend to their patient/victim (who seems to have his heart ripped out of him). Most of us hope we can get away with looking at the spectacle through the protective glass. Notwithstanding what the store window says, this is not trick or treat. It is more like Day of the Dead.
