Yes, Darla, I wondered for a moment if you were employed in the pharmaceutical industry!
But, despite CW Post's theories, cornflakes are not medicine. You can take 'em or leave 'em. Not so with life-saving medicines. Is greed the best impetus for finding an AIDS vaccine? And forget about the ethics.
I don't know, if the government and technology industry can fritter away zillions searching for a super-conductor with no return in sight...
Seriously, I am not a big conspiracy theorist either. And I don't believe that anybody is blocking the vaccine's development for their own nefarious reasons. The stumbling blocks here are what they have always been with a sexually transmitted disease: greed, bad science, and puritanism.
And, to top it all off, I don't believe that so-called AIDS is 20 years old. I think it's older.
