As I mentioned here, I’m heading to Ohio in the morning. I have two brand-new nephews to meet. My sister gave birth to her first child back on January 24th, and a sister-in-law just had her first on Valentine’s Day. (And the baby boom ain’t over yet–another almost-sister-in-law–my brother-in-law’s girlfriend–is due in May). So, the positive: I get to spend the weekend playing with babies and then give them back to their mommies when they puke, poop, and generally do all that nasty stuff that babies do. The negative: 8+ hours (looks like bad weather, so potentially up to 10) in a car with just me, my two kids, and the dog, likely with much of that taken up by my daughter complaining when we listen to “boy music,” and my son likewise complaining about every “girl song.”
Anyhoo, I’ll be back next week (or maybe even over the weekend, if I get bored of family stuff) with more on the AIDS issue, and hopefully some more original research analyses. I’ve been a bit short on those lately because of time–alas, despite what was claimed by one of the more active responders on the Bethell AIDS thread, I don’t make a living blogging, and I’m not paid by Tony Fauci to discuss these things.
