In a demonstration I observed in McPherson Square today that comprised about 100 individuals (and that organizers will claim comprised a million) I saw signs reading: "Bigotry causes AIDS." As a health writer I feel quite foolish because I always thought that it was a virus, one primarily transmitted by anal sex and shared needles. Other signs declared: "Bush Has Declared War on AIDS." Indeed, in a sense he has. His administration has spent more per year on both AIDS research and medical and non-medical assistance to AIDS victims than that of any other president. Glad I'm not completely in disagreement with those million protesters.
