ezs note:  This is, by far, the most fascinating story about Vietnam has reported.  Y'see, it's not entirely Vietnam's fault.  A certain agency, PEPFAR, has, until recently, provided a large sum of the funds necessary to combat HIV/AIDS.  PEPFAR stands for U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.  And guess who's in charge of that after January 20?

I don't even want to say it...

Please, call your Representative and both Senators and ask that PEPFAR be fully funded.

"If there was anything that characterized the men and women of the 'Rubyfruit Generation,' it was our innocence and our idealism.  We really believed that we could make things better, for ourselves and for our brothers and sisters."
