According to an article in The Washington Post, at least 3% of D.C. residents are AIDS-infected.
"Our rates are higher than West Africa," said Shannon L. Hader, director of the District's HIV/AIDS Administration.
I suppose that all of this is conservative's fault. We wouldn't want to blame it on drugs and orgiastic promiscuity, now would we?
It's all a plot, you see, by the white man to keep inner city minorities down. It has nothing to do with keeping zippers up and pants on. Nothing to do with abstinence, loyalty to one spouse, or being clean from drugs. Nope.
In fact, it all has to do with mysterious Air Force planes that fly over the city, frequently dousing it with AIDS spray, genetically designed to infect only the minority, non-religious, and "alternative amorous lifestyle" residents.
Ah, yes. That MUST be it.
