For those who do care

29 Dec

Sirdan took Lord Malcolm back to the hospice yesterday. I’m going there today; so is Sirdan. Things are not looking good.

Broader related issue

Just received this from Planet Out:

President Bush’s ambitious AIDS-fighting program in poor countries has pushed so hard for fast results that basic record keeping and accountability often went by the wayside, making it hard to judge the true success, according to government audits and officials. Investigators found the 3-year-old, $15-billion program has overcounted and undercounted thousands of patients it helped or was unable to verify claims of success by local groups that took U.S. money to prevent the spread of disease or care for AIDS victims and their children…

Lord Malcolm is amazing.

This afternoon Sirdan and I were able to take him out for three hours, wheeling him down to Woolworths to do some shopping, then to a coffee shop, then to the pub, and then back to the hospice just as a mother of a storm was about to break. We hope tomorrow to take him to the movies at Fox Studios.

At the pub we ran into Sailor Andy, whom I haven’t seen for maybe two years. I know he has been to the Persian Gulf three times since I last saw him.
