I just saw part of a special also describing how back in the way early days
of AIDS one of the main dudes at the CDC wanted to stop homosexuals from
donating blood as he had found many links between gays and aids. The homo-
sexual organization leaders AND the blood suppliers shut him up and he was
no longer invited to their little meetings on how to stop it. Seems the left
wing Political Correctness folks are as much to blame (if not more) than the
right wingers.
