<TABLE ><TR><TD><FONT size=2><DIV>I was listening to Asma Meer (?) yesterday on the radio phone-in on how to prevent AIDS. <BR>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>Apart from the reasonably sane advice from the panelists on starting sex-ed early, there was a dearth of calls from religious fanatics. Promise Keeper types, calling for abstinence and dragging God into it. </DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>What I was thinking, is that if these people are acceptable, then why aren t our views aired more? When was the last time the BBC did a special on our side of the argument? -- Ed</DIV></FONT></TD></TR></TABLE>

<TABLE ><TR><TD><FONT size=2>I try to catch the BBC when possible. They seem to know more about what the US is doing than the US tells it s citizens. I bet they have NEVER done an AIDS fraud show or even a "debate". I thought the idea of presenting news was to simply inform, NOT telling you what you should think or how you should respond. I guess those days are gone forever with the big money behind the AIDS lie.<BR>Ken</FONT></TD></TR></TABLE>
