did you know...

that the nation's capital, washington, d.c., suffers an AIDS epidemic to rival that of 3rd world countries?


...perhaps the pope should have visited anacostia and gone on a walk-a-bout disguised as a poor, black male while he was here, instead of having streets closed and secret service swarming everywhere for him.

interesting op-ed piece in the post this weekend denying that 3% qualifies as an epidemic and that the comparison to most african nations is out of context. the premise for this argument was that the anti-retrovirals that are now available are making the high infection rate bearable/managable. seriously?! who is going to pay the ticket for that public health bill? to be fair the piece did suggest a clean needle program be instituted, but we'll see. thanks for the outrage.
