Of Hopes and Dreams (Early Friday Post)

This article professes that we could very soon have an injectable gene therapy treatment to make human beings immune to HIV. Done. Over with. Gone the way of polio. Bye-bye birdie.

What does this mean for us as a people?

Well, for one thing, Africa is gonna be a lot more interesting what with the population being healthy enough to fight over what little food and resources exist there. Also, gonna be a killer vacation spot.

More importantly, all the AIDS jokes are going to stop making sense in only a few short years. Thus, I propose we as funny persons of comedic intent select a new disease to be the ultimate butt of jokes, a consequence of stupidity or even horrendous luck as terrible as AIDS is at the moment.

Cancer can hold up for the time being. After that I suggest the herpes.
