AIDS Day in China?

0013729ece6b0c7f15b221.jpgGiven that when we got here in the early 1990's, AIDS was not yet something that existed in public -- and given that the China Daily has not been a great supporter of the United States or the West in general, we are happy to see some human rights issues being recognized in a large photo essay yesterday and today.  Front page coverage of such a sensitive subject in a hard copy daily paper here is quite extraordinary.

Sure we can say that China is not playing by the same rules as the rest of the world if that is what we want to focus on.  But sometimes they do 'the right thing' and we should applaud them for doing so.
