kbronsito: Larry was getting badgered with some of those questions. I thought the press pool was going to start to ask him if he knew what happens when you find as stranger in the alps? (A: you catch aids, that's what!)And that reporter in the last set of text turned out to be an dumb a-hole becuase he's treating the WH press secretary as though Reagan is an idiot for not going on a panic to prevent the spread of AIDS through SALIVA. Now, I know that back then we weren't entirely sure how AIDS was passed on... but this guy was going at it as though he knew. If farking doctors and researchers didn't know, then how did that reporter claim to know? So apparently lazy and ignorant journalism isn't just a new thing.
netringer: And even when the word got out that lotsa people were dying from AIDS there was hostility to the victims, because it was only killing gay men, even when it wasn't.You know. Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell said AIDs was God's revenge on gays even when it wasn't just killing gays.On the other hand one of the only things that GW Bush of all people did right was fight AIDS in Africa.
