Here's today's Washington Watch Daily commentary from FRC Radio:
The latest news on AIDS gives new meaning to the phrase "midlife crisis." According to research, more heterosexual people over the age of 50 are contracting HIV. Why? Well, for the same reason the disease has reached record numbers in young people. Older couples are having promiscuous sex. And if you're intimate at all, no matter what your age, you're not immune from HIV or AIDS. But unfortunately, the typical 50-plus crowd believes they're not at risk. The Washington Post interviewed one 55 year-old who said, "the chance of me coming down with AIDS is about the same as me winning the lottery." Well, if that's the case, then you ought to start buying tickets, because research says that the cases of HIV in Baby Boomers has increased 106 percent in the last 10 years. The older generation thinks that HIV is a young person's disease. But whether you're 18 or 80, sex outside of marriage could still be the kiss of death.
