Zika is not a disease

Okay, let’s come to an understanding here. A virus is not a disease. Therefore, contrary to how some of our esteemed legislators and members of the press, are characterizing it, Zika is not a disease. Some viruses can cause diseases. Some viruses are harmless. And some viruses are actually beneficial. Wow, you mean it’s not a black or white, good versus evil kind of thing? Nope.
