Why I prefer the Indy

This, from GU, annoyed me:

"To the Bush government and backers of a Christian fundamentalist persuasion, the best way to preventing the spread of HIV/Aids is, in the words of a previous famous first lady, to "just say no". Don't have sex until you are married. Don't sleep with anybody but your partner. Don't inject drugs.

A number of people - to hazard a guess, the majority of the planet's population - don't find these things so easy."

But unfortunately I don't have the time to tell you why.

Hmmm, maybe you can guess.

May be its expressed a bit baldy/inflammatorily for you, but the point has to be made that Bush is pouring millions of dollars into programmes demanding "education" on abstinence because of the moral position of the religious right, without any evidence that this helps reduce HIV infection.
