Another Extra Long Quote of the Day


One of the greatest moral and policy failures of the last thirty years is the indifference that allowed AIDS to spread around the globe.  That indifference arose in part from the sanctimony of the moralizers.  In 1983, Patrick Buchanan declared, “The poor homosexuals – they have declared war against nature, and now nature is exacting an awful retribution.”  In retrospect, the grossest immorality of the 1980s took place not in San Francisco bathhouses, but in the corridors of power where self-righteous leaders displayed callous indifference to the spread of the disease. – Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn; Half the Sky
