Intellectual Abuse

                Listening to the news on my car radio awhile back I was stunned to hear a reporter stating flatly that “250,000 people in the U.S. are infected with the HIV virus and don’t even know it.”
                And you and the people who came up with that figure know this…how?!? If the people who have it don’t know it  (and therefore obviously haven’t sought treatment for a disease they aren’t aware they have), how are you so certain of it?
                If the theoreticians, study heads and reporters who created and touted this “fact” actually do know this, maybe they should tell the people who have the virus and let them get treatment. Oh, of course, they have no idea on an individual level who carries the disease, but are absolutely certain about the  group totals!
                Well, what else do you folks know, and how do you know it? Perhaps there are 42 million male lesbians in the U.S. who don’t know it? We’ve got to find them and let them out of the closet!

                I am waiting for a reporter to break the tragic news that “there are 10,114 reporters in this country who are logically-challenged and don’t even know it!”
