AIDS has always gotten far more funding than it really deserved, considering how few people it killed and how preventable it always was.

In the USA, you mean. AIDS kills a lot of Africans, because they're too poor to afford condoms, and their Catholic culture tells not to use birth control anyway. I thought Pope Francis had modernized that view, but could be wrong. I'm not religious.

When I was in HS, anyone who was gay, or even suspected of such, would've been beat up every. single. day. after school. Now, it seems encouraged as an open-minded lifestyle choice. I don't think it's a choice of course. Who would ever choose that and be ostracized by society? They "come out" as gay, and it's a big deal. No one "comes out" as straight. There are no straight-pride parades. No hetero-pride flag. Guys must be aroused to get hard, and some other guy's hairy ass would be a wienie-shrinker for me and any straight dude.

Too poor to afford a condom? Then you are too poor to hang out at a gay bar or bath house looking for action. Sorry, that one does not compute. Just an excuse.

Not going to go into the "its not a choice" thing yet again.

I said Africans are too poor for condoms. Do they go to bath houses and gay bars? I dunno.

Didn't see that, sorry. But who knows on the rest. I have heard that homosexuality is higher among Blacks even if Blacks have less tolerance for gays. So who knows what they do over there. I have also heard that Blacks he HIV are just generally more prone to the HIV virus, less genetic defense.

Still does not change the bath house culture in the USA.

She really loved Frank, she always wanted
him back. She never married again. Except
for cheating on her with scores of women,
he never mistreated her. Her door was
always open for him, he would sometimes
come over unannounced and sleep on
her couch. She was a classy lady.

Did anyone note the passing of Tab Hunter? He passed three days before his 87th birthday. He was a bit before my time, but I suspect EB may have been a big fan.

I knew who he was, but his fame
was before my time too. He
was real big as a teen idol in
the 50's when I was a little kid.

He made movies in and TV all
his life, but always in bit parts.

WWE Hall of Famer who played villain Nikolai Volkoff dies at 70.

If you watched wrestling in the 1980s you remember him. At one point the had to sell himself to Ted DiBiase.
