(I sent a comment to David's new Blog, but it would appear he doesn't have visible comments. Pity. In any case, I figured I might as well reproduce them in this space as well. If you want to understand the context, follow the link.)

It's good to see that the "AIDS is a gay disease" meme is alive and well, if only because it serves as the sort of useful falsehood that Mills explained was necessary in order to reconfirm and remind people of the truth of the matter.

It's also helpful that David seems to feel no need to support this assertion, either, especially considering it opens wide and indefensible holes in the methodology of the study he cites- both it's external validity and usefulness for policy formation. I wonder what the scientists involved would think of David's conclusion?

(Honestly, it's too much.)
