    Maybe they’ll get so incensed that they decide to take a more active role in Uganda. That’ll end well.

    I’m usually an internationalist, but I want the current US administration to do as little as possible in its remaining time, because the Bushies seem to fuck up everything they touch. Americans should do more to fight the spread of HIV. But not the Americans in charge. Best to lie low and wait for them to go away.

    MSF, UNICEF, WHO, the whole alphabet soup — there are good people fighting the good fight, and many of them are Americans. We’re not a bad people. We just have a bad government. Working on that.

    Believe me, I know there’s plenty of good people in your country. I’m very careful with my terms regarding the distinction between the current administration and the rest.
