What else should government do?

Efforts Against AIDS Among Black Americans Criticized - At this point in the AIDS story, everybody should know what constitutes risky behavior.

Should we really spend more tax money to try to teach people what risky behavior is? Will any more tax money do anything?

No doubt someone will lament that the people getting AIDS through intravenous drug use don't have access to sterile needles, but I for one don't think that the government should be subsidizing your drug habit.

As for spending money in the rest of the world to tell people what risky behavior is... if we are going to spend money, it should be at home. But will spending the money actually do anything?
