An unnamed resident of Minden, Nebraska, population 2,923, erected a placard on his property just off Highway 10 on the north side of town. The message read: "AIDS, Ebola, Obama – Thanks Africa."
The sign references two fatal diseases – AIDS and Ebola – thought to have originated on the African continent, and the name of President Obama, which, depending on your political affiliation, might be considered another disease with African roots.
