Recent figures released by the government suggest that HIV is now spreading from traditional high-risk target groups, like truckers and sex workers in cities, to those living in rural areas.

Robert Altier, shows the moral outrage of a good priest.

The more incisive of the two, in my humble opinion, is by Fr. Richard John Neuhaus, given in a reflection on the essay by Charles Krauthammer in the Weekly Standard at the November 28, 2005 edition of Observations and Contentions at Firstthings.com.
