Say What

Déjà Vu
“Kids Innocent Victims in AIDS Fight”
—AP headline, October 17

She’s the Ultimate
“These figures mean that new treatments have been very effective in extending the lives [of people] who already have HIV—but they do not mean that we have significantly reduced HIV transmission. Our ultimate goal is to prevent the estimated 40,000 new HIV infections that occur each year.”
—Needle-exchange naysayer and health secretary Donna Shalala, Portland’s Just Out, October 16

Fisher Foul
“We [my lover and I] were taught by [AIDS activist] Mary Fisher to simply not answer those questions [about whether we’re HIV positive or not]. It’s the scarlet-letter mentality. We need to set the precedent that it doesn’t matter.”
—Gay former Republican Congressman Steve Gunderson, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, October 4

Frum the Heart
“ACT UP urged its followers to face illness not with courage and faith, but with complaints and wild accusations—to think of disease as a man-made evil, like segregation. If science is unable instantly to cure you, it only shows [that] the government that funds it is callous and cruel.”
—Columnist David Frum, The Toronto Sun, September 26

Gap Smear
“The president, with his staining of the dress (“On me, not in me”) and his use of a dildo (albeit a nicotine-filled one), deserves to become a poster child for the practice of safe sex.”
—Adam York, Bay Area Reporter Letters, September 24
