The Hoosiers Again

I'm sure it's just a coincidence that this has happened in a state that has recently demonstrated its ignorance so gloriously to the world. There has been a big outbreak of HIV infections in Scott County, Indiana; 106 new infections since December.

Needle exchanges are not legal in Indiana, but the Governor has authorized a short-term needle exchange. 437 dirty syringes were turned in.
