... but in reading the news this morning, I note that Indiana Gob'nor Mike Pence has declared a southern Indiana county a public health disaster. And not without good cause -- apparently they are in an outbreak of almost 80 new HIV victims.
What drew my attention to the article was not the health emergency, nor the 80 victims, but what was missing. In the entire twelve paragraph report that fully describes to the situation.... cause, numbers, and predictions --- not once is the disease;s name AIDS used..... just HIV!
Has the word AIDS been banned from public discourse? Like so many others in our recent political correctness explosion?
