It’s the last two graphs of this CNN news brief about the devastation yet to come from the world-wide AIDS epidemic that stick in my craw. :
Quite a lot to ask of those of us in the U.S.; a land where AIDS is almost completely off the radar screen, despite new reports about the re-infection phenomenon (reflexively dismissed to by The Creature From the Blog Lagoon as “a slim reed of science”), and the appearance of new HIV strains resistant to the drugs currently available.
To hear from most of today’s mod a-go-go gays, nobody even talks about condoms anymore: “Who wants to use them? Besides, AIDS is an Old Gay Man’s Disease, isn’t it? And there’s some cocktail you can take to cure it”
No, I’m not exaggerating.
Yes we certainly want to make sure those gas tanks are filled.
Don’t want have to walk to all those funerals.
