About Bloody Time 

Finally waking up to reality and taking note of appallingly high STD/STI and unplanned pregnancy rates* among sailors and marines, Navy medical officers are now actively encouraging condom distribution and use promotion, recklessly casting themselves into the 'reality-based community' so reviled by the current Bush administration, who seemare clearly desperate to ensure that as many people get AIDS and are born to single, unprepared mothers.

Don't National Security and Protecting The Homeland (am I the only one who's really disturbed by the use of that word?) require healthy troops, Mr. Bush?

* I don't know the exact figures, but a source in the higher levels of military medicine tells me that about 65% of US active duty service members have hepatitis B or C, so extrapolate from there.
