The sad truth

1. AIDS is a plague — numerically, statistically and by any definition known to modern public health — though no one in authority has the guts to call it one.

2. Too many people hate the people that AIDS most affects…

I think this is a good article overall, however, he also misses a huge population of HIV/AIDS sufferers:  women, particularly those of color.  While he includes them in terms of “people” much of his rhetoric is focused on men and specifically gay men.  I would go all bell hooks over this, but I’ll save it for another time.
