World AIDS Day
Today is the day that I thank my lucky stars that I never got this disease, and believe me, anyone can get it. You don't have to be gay or a drug user. If you need proof, look no further than the epidemic in Africa, and the subsequent change in life expectancy, especially in Sub-Saharan regions. I have lost way too many friends to this disease. Hell, one was too many. I'm sure you have too. Here are some interesting links to read, and remind ourselves of how decimating it's been to an already dehumanized portion of our society.

The gawd awful dead celebrity awareness campaign, though who doesn't want to see a Kardashian in a coffin? :http://www.ecorazzi.com/2010/12/01/world-aids-day-2010-celebrities-die-for-keep-a-child-alive-campaign/
And Bunny's post on lame club kids. Why not? I knew club kids, now long dead from AIDS, that are still more interesting than these sad sack trolls! :http://blog.ladybunny.net/2010/11/no-wonder-clubs-are-dead.html#comments
And just like that I made a stupid joke in an AIDS post. If that doesn't tell you everything you need to know about me, I don't know what will.
