"So. Our ancestors clawed their way out of the caves, fought behemoths with their bare hands; survived earthquakes, floods, volcanic eruptions, meteor showers and plagues, all so their descendents could sit on the road and wail."

Oh for...
These are our
leaders?!? They can't come up with a less-stupid way of expressing their feelings than renaming foods?

Wow. There's a
Merck Veterinary Manual and it's all online.

My God.
"AIDS is the No. 1 cause of death for African-Americans aged 25-44, according to the CDC.

"One in 160 black women is infected with HIV and one in 50 black men," Holmes said. "It's not just the inner city, and it's not just the poor that are affected. You could almost lose or wipe out generations."

Thirty percent of gay black men in their 20s are infected with HIV, compared to 7 percent of white gay men, according to a recent CDC study of six large U.S. cities.

An African-American woman is 20 times more likely to contract AIDS than a white woman. African-American adolescents accounted for more than 60 percent of AIDS cases reported in 1999 among 13- to 19-year-olds."

That's here in the US not Africa.

Yeesh. People sure do suck. I don't know if Canada has a good samaritan law and what the wording is. It'd be interesting if it turned out that her employer fired her for obeying the law. Froggi you should get on that. I know in Minnesota you have a duty to assist.
"Duty to Assist: A person at the scene of an emergency who knows that another person is exposed to or has suffered grave physical harm shall, to the extent that the person can do so without danger or peril to self or others, give reasonable assistance to the exposed person. Reasonable assistance may include obtaining or attempting to obtain aid from law enforcement or medical personnel. A person who violates this subdivision is guilty of a petty misdemeanor."
