Change (Red)

A friend (Lani, with whom I went to Seattle one year ago this month) sent me this:
I love the Stand By Me clip.

I was glad to see the (Red) designation. A buddy to people living with HIV for seven years (1988-1995), I still feel that AIDS issues largely fall under our radar.

This is probably the only moment when I will praise Bush, but I praise Bush for his prioritization of fighting AIDS in Africa (even if, in practice, the effort was essentially stymied by internal conflicts, due to Bush's caveats). I was struck dumb when W announced this priority, years ago. And, sadly for all of you, I am not often struck dumb!
