Before anyone criticizes others either by words or by cartoons, they should ask themselves if they could do any better.

You need to include Ige and Green.

I think we should all take a step back before ruthlessly criticizing individuals at DOH.  Firstly, there is enough blame to go around, up to and including the role the press played  in failure to sufficiently educate the public on disease mitigation.  For example, the press/news media might have done a better job communicating lessons learned from cluster patterns (e..g., avoiding pot lucks at work, etc).  Secondly, little is gained from skewering individuals, and much is gained by analyzing and modifying processes.  We all need to go back to the drawing board...literally in this instance.
