World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS day, so I thought I'd spread the word that Bristol Myers Squibb is donating $1 to AIDS research for every time you click on this site--Light to Unite. I will keep in check my comments about how much money they are making off of AIDS drugs, and the ad they have for a new one as a banner on this site. I will just say it's a nice gesture, and welcome.
More on the Radio today about AIDS in South Africa and the huge number of children born with the virus. Luckily, one Catholic Bishop has his head on straight and is taking the Catholic Church to task about their stance on condoms. They can only bury their head in the sand so long, until too many children (and women) are buried because of their "morals". It's not happy that we have to have this day, but it's good we recognize how much of a struggle there still is.

While you're at it, you can visit, who give "gifts of service" for the holidays from your donations.
