AIDS Picks Up Nasty Persona


Here's some interesting eye candy in which AIDS is given a voice, and it ain't friendly. Most will remember the unpleasant Roy Cohn from the hard-as-nails Pacino depiction in 2003's Angels in America.

Unendorsed by Join Red, a movement to reinvigorate the AIDS discourse, the ad was created by Owen Plotkin, who likes making provocative ads for good causes.

Interestingly enough, tempering Join Red is growing speculation about what AIDS actually is and whether it exists at all. We look forward to watching the crossfire move into public salience. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

I never saw someone write it the way you've done. AIDS is an acronym and, thus, you must capitalize all the letters. You don't have the option of choosing one letter (the "s") and putting it into lowercase.

Thanks for your help.

How despicable of us. We beg your forgiveness and pray you'll accept these changes as a token of our undying appreciation.
