With West Nile virus on the rise nationwide and Texas accounting for more than half of this year’s deaths from the mosquito-borne disease, Dallas mayor Mike Rawlings has declared a state of emergency and ordered the aerial spraying of insecticide. What do you think?

“I hope they remember to spray around people’s ankles. That’s where they get you.”

"It's nice that Mayor Rawlings was able to keep his campaign promise of spraying chemicals over all his constituents."

"Someone should call Africa and see how they fixed their West Nile problem."
