The Globe and Mail: Rutgers researchers may have stopped HIV

The Globe and Mail: Rutgers researchers may have stopped HIV: "Researchers at Rutgers University have developed a trio of drugs they believe can destroy HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, according to a published report."

Wonder how Andy Sullivan would take that? He says:

"In the living room of a friend of mine, there's a coffee table crammed with photographs. One stands out: four young men in tuxes taken three years ago. They're all grinning, in classic college-buddy group-shot mode. Of the four, two are now dead. One died two years ago, the second in early November, when Kaposi's Sarcoma (KS), the cancerous lesions common to people with AIDS, entered his lungs."

Well, Andy, maybe you have hope.
