Three percent of the population of Washington DC (at least) is HIV-positive, according to city health officials. That rate is three times that of a "generalized and severe epidemic," and according to city HIV/AIDS Administration chief Shannon L. Hader, is higher than West Africa and "on par with Uganda and some parts of Kenya."

Other findings:

* Ten percent of the city's forty-something population carries the virus.

* Just three in five infected people know they have it.

* 76 percent of those testing positive were black.

* 70 percent of those testing positive were men.

* Heterosexual sex is the leading cause of transmission, with homosexual sex and drug use following closely behind.

Holy crap! This is why I think the CDC should be handing out condoms on the street-corners. Well, this and shit like Palin's brat and the unemployed, drop-out boyfriend.
