YOU HAVE TO WANT IT:

Global AIDS epidemic is a myth admit world experts (Fiona Macrae, 09th June 2008, Daily Mail)

The threat of a global AIDS epidemic is over, the World Health Organisation's top HIV expert has admitted.

Kevin De Cock, who has spent most of his career leading the battle against the disease, said the understanding of the threat posed by the virus had changed.

Rather than being a risk to populations anywhere, the threat is largely confined to gay men, drug addicts and prostitutes and their clients.

"But the factors driving HIV were still not fully understood"

"The impact of HIV is so heterogeneous. In the US , the rate of infection among men in Washington DC is well over 100 times higher than in North Dakota, the region with the lowest rate. That is in one country. How do you explain such differences?"

That is a real mystery. Maybe it's the wheat fields.

No, Dr. Goodthighs. Pussy Galore was a lesbian (at least, until she met 007).
