Am I missing something? Understandably people get excited when a child born with (one of?) the world’s deadliest diseases is cured by science within a couple years, but this isn’t anything new. Earvin Johnson has been HIV-free for two decades now…and he didn’t just stumble into HIV like some baby. No way. Magic spent YEARS dishing out unprotected dicks to strange 80′s chicks like dimes to Kareem. He EARNED that disease. If a fully-grown man armed with nothing but bottomless pools of cash and the support of millions of fans can triumph over HIV, some Southern baby shouldn’t impress everybody so damned much.
And excuse me if I sound a little suspicious but this happened where now? Mississippi? The same state that’s ranked last in the country in EVERYTHING who just officially abolished slavery less than a MONTH AGO? Sounds like somebody’s state is trying to get a chair at the big kid science table.
