Way-Back Machine - This NYTimes editorial on how anti-gay prejudices in Jamaica contribute to a deepening AIDS crisis is like a time machine taking us back to early-Eighties America. We got over it, but what a shame to see that kind of bigotry lingering into a third decade elsewhere. (By the by, has anyone else noticed that the NYT seems view itself as the paper of record for chronicling black society's struggle to come to grips with homosexuality.)
