Pham thanked medical practitioners and her support team earlier today upon being released from NIH in Bethesda.
“So with gratitude and respect for everyone’s concern, I ask for my privacy and for my family’s privacy to be respected as I return to Texas and try to get back to a normal life and reunite with my dog, Bentley,” said Pham.
It’s Friday, almost the weekend, and therefore, time to gather up your reading list…everything you saw this week but didn’t have time to actually read.
This week, FishbowlDC presents the latest issue of Bloomberg Businessweek and its cover story “Obama Is Too Cool for Crisis Management,” by Josh Green.

Meanwhile, public anxiety mounted as cable news hysteria filled the vacuum and shaped the perception of the unfolding crisis.”
