TOUGH LOVE: Steve Den Beste

TOUGH LOVE: Steve Den Beste gives us a bracing, slap-in-the-face-dose of reality when it comes to AIDS and Africa. How bracing? Here’s one paragraph:

I honestly think that at this point nothing at all can prevent a catastrophe in sub-Saharan Africa. It’s gone too far. This patient can no longer be saved; all we can do is to watch him die.

Read the rest, and then weep for the nightmare of the current AIDS epidemic in Africa–and what’s to come.
