World AIDS Day

Until a few minutes ago, I wasn’t sure if I was going to participate in Day Without Weblogs or not — it looked like I was going to omit today’s blog entry by reason of circumstance rather than intent. But I got to Logan Airport in time to connect up and to read Al‘s page, and I realized that even the tiny contribution that my joining the effort makes is worthwhile.

If you don’t think AIDS has affected you, read what Al has to say — and think about it next time you visit the doctor or dentist or find yourself too close to a sick stranger on a train or bus or airplane.
