Still has really, really poor taste.

James Faulk is, apparently, very serious about this. Despite any negative reaction he may have received after media coverage of his Ebola-themed Halloween decorations -- and there were probably at least as many that were positive -- the University Park dad plans to keep the hazardous material drums, medical waste bags and caution tape up through Friday.
In a note sent to The Dallas Morning News, Faulk promises to donate cash to Doctors Without Borders for every person that steps foot in his "E-BOO-LA victim room." Entrance will cost at least $1, the note says.
Faulk further tells the News that "[a]n ambulance, forklift and other props" will be in place by Halloween. "As you know the news has spread around the world and we'd like to put it to good use and help a great cause! We are NOT in this for any financial gain, unless its [sic] for our charity," he says.
