8/6     Journalism at its best: the closest a long article about "Links between
        Prison and AIDS affecting Blacks" gets to prison rape is "Correctional
        health experts say the rampant sexual activity among prisoners
        depicted in television shows like the HBO prison series \"Oz\" is
        exaggerated. But sex in prison certainly occurs."

        \_ Two friends of mine argued a case at a debate tournament that
           the way to prevent prison rape was soap on a rope... -John
           \_ DId they win?
           \_ What does soap on a rope do?
              \_ Harder to accidentally drop.  Bending over to pick up your
                 soap in a communal shower leads to...
                 \_ Why not just bend at the knees?
                    \_ If you prefer oral to rear-entry, sure.

4/17    Just a thought.  Say we select a small percentagle of the population
        (e.g. 100000 people) with representations from all walks of life
        (scientists, engineers, doctors, chefs, plumbers, nannies, ...) except
        bad guys, transport them to a distant earth-like planet with abundant
        natural resources, and take away all man-made objects (machines,
        clothes, books, medicines, all tools, ...)  How long will it take for

4/22    Costco is selling "Bluetooth Capable Premium Digital Hearing Aids" for
        $1999.99 a pair.  My Bluetooth cell phone headset is maybe $30 for one
        ear.  Why does hearing aid cost so much?
        \_ Medical insurance?
        \_ Does $2000-your medical deductible = $30?
           \_ How come insurance companies allow such rip-offs?

1/15    Now that Steve Jobs and Patrick Swayze are sick with
        pancreatic cancer, is pancreatic cancer going to become
        a cause celebre and get lots of research funding,
        far beyond what is actually justified by the magnitude
        of the actual problem?
        \_ they have Elton John doing benefits, not Jimmy Buffet.

10/14   I don't understand this whole AIDS walk BS. Instead of saying
        "I'm going to walk X miles, can you donate $1 per mile?" why
        don't they just simplify it and say "Give me whatever $ you got"?
        Why make it so complex? Sheesh
        \_ Because charity events get more people involved in asking for
           money.  Duh.  -tom

By LYNETTE CLEMETSON (NYT) 2780 words Late Edition - Final , Section A , Page 1 , Column 5 ABSTRACT - Health workers see link between high rates of imprisonment among African-Americans and high rates of HIV and AIDS in black population at large; researchers are examining how patterns of incarceration affect its transmission beyond prison walls; blacks now account for more than half of all new HIV infections, and black women account for 72 percent of all new cases among women; during decades that AIDS epidemic has spread, number of people incarcerated has also soared, and 40 percent of them are black; researchers are starting to address two issues as intertwined epidemics requiring combined prevention and treatment strategies; they are urging strategies that connect education and treatment among three groups of people: inmates, those recently released, and those in social networks through which they move; graphs Please Note: Archive articles do not include photos, charts or graphics.
