And they laughed

I'm sitting in an airport reading blogs. Man, it's been a long time since I flew. They have internet! But they wanted to smell my shoes and my mascara. Weird.

Anyway, was reading Bitch, who linked to Shelley, who included a transcript of the first White House press conference to mention AIDS.

I didn't move to New York until 5 years after that conference. I knew about AIDS but wasn't very aware of the implications and the problems. However, I was studying a field that was being decimated by this disease about which we still know relatively little. I learned a lot, fast, and no one ever, ever laughed.
