The Zika virus has claimed the life of a Texas baby, health officials reported Tuesday.
The baby, whose mother had traveled to Latin America during her pregnancy, died shortly after birth. The infant was born with microcephaly, a condition in which a baby's head is abnormally small and, in most cases, brain development is incomplete.
The baby was born in Harris County, which includes Houston. It's the first Zika-related death in Texas.
And there are about 1,000 cases now in the US. And Congress is still on vacation. When you go to the polls in November, vote for a Republican congressman if the incumbent is a Democrat, and vote for a Democratic congressman if the incumbent is a Republican. There is absolutely no excuse for doing nothing. These sons of bitches all need to be fired. Every damn one of them.
