Re: EpDis: Confessions And Lamentations

In Africa, education about AIDS is certainly running into trouble; and AIDS research began painfully slowly, because the original populations affected by the disease were homosexual men and Haitian immigrants. The religious overtones of the arguments against research were not pronounced, as far as I know, but definitely there.

Also, considering that JMS based this ep. loosely on the AIDS epidemic, he didn't invent it from wholecloth.
