aae1049 - you missed the "spirit" in which this article was penned.
JAHCHILD - you can go on believing that you're helping . . . but seriously?
boy - see the above
bulbs - thanks for reassuring that some folks get it!
and before anyone rushes to point fingers at me . . . pick up your phone, get online or get in your car and get out and volunteer to do something about it. there are plenty of organization, in the valley, that need your help. specifically, JAHCHILD, a hug or smile at an HIV testing site will go much further than thumping your bible. put your money where your mouth is . . . then maybe you can honestly say "I hope I have helped somebody. I might have, you know."
p.s. if you need to know who needs your volunteer help, let me know, i'll point you in the right direction.
p.s.s. as someone with HIV, i'd like to thank david for a relevant and honest article.
