the first time I saw/read of AIDS. I don't think it was called AIDS at that time, but somebody brought in a Time magazine article and it was in the break room where I was working. I believe the year was around 1982.
Now I read this today about a "new" disease. Do you suppose this one is President Reagan's fault, too?
Don't click on the link if you're squeamish.

think of this, SF a few years ago passed a law saying you don't own your pets, you are their caretaker. Then a few weeks ago they passed another law requiring that all pets have fresh water and food at all times. And now you can't smoke in a public park. got to keep healthy you know. But, we got to have our bathhouses, Don't mess with them. Must be the salt air out there, they are getting crazier every year.

I don't know about a 'new disease'...

"Background: Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is a sexually transmitted disease that primarily infects the lymphatics.

The disease originally was described in 1833 by Wallace. It was defined as a clinical and pathological entity in 1913 by Durand, Nicolas, and Favre.

LGV synonyms include lymphopathia venerea, tropical bubo, climatic bubo, strumous bubo, poradenitis inguinales, Durand-Nicolas-Favre disease, and lymphogranuloma inguinale.

Pathophysiology: LGV is caused by Chlamydia trachomatis. It gains entrance through skin breaks and abrasions, or it crosses the epithelial cells of mucous membranes. The organism travels via the lymphatics to multiply within mononuclear phagocytes in regional lymph nodes.

Transmission is predominantly sexual. However, transmission by fomites, nonsexual personal contact, and laboratory accidents has been documented. The creation of aerosols of this organism has been associated with infection and pulmonary symptoms.

I put "new" in quotes. The article did say it was rare. Might not be so rare much longer if them boys don't mend their ways. (Don't look for that to happen.) It will be somebody else's responsibility, ie: the taxpayers, to figure out a cure. Since they'll probably spread it to the general population (sound familiar?), it will then indeed become everybody's problem.

I heard them folks are counting on Hillary to provide all the funding needed to find the cure..... once she is elected Prez.....

Clipper: who believes the stupid should be punished.

No, Steve, nobody's going to try to pin it on Clinton. You miss the point entirely (as usual). Most people realize that they are responsible for their own actions and resulting consequences.
