    Default more on DC's case, from the NYTimes and Metafilter

    The New York Times has a thoughtful essay in the Health section called With AIDS, Time to Get Beyond Blame. The writer is a physician who specializes in infection diseases and she mentions DC's case in her discussion of the legal issues surrounding HIV transmission.

    The DC case also gets a mention in a related post on the very awesome website MetaFilter.

    (I'm not sensationalizing the DC case. I think it's a very sad situation. But the core issues -- HIV/AIDS/disclosure/brain injury -- are too important to ignore.)

    If I remember the original articles correctly, the allegations were not simply that Darren did not know/get tested, but that he told his partner he DID get tested and was negative. If these are the charges brought against him, then the case will not precipitate a reluctance for individuals to get tested. That is how I see it.

    Default How is this Horse Related?

    And, it isn't even close to being Eventing related. Move on! Move on!

    As the background re: laws affecting the case isn't horse-related, we're going to close the thread. As this topic has gone off the rails numerous times before and isn't horse-related in terms of the charges, we're limiting discussion of the situation/case to how it eventually may affect his involvement in the industry.
