It is World AIDS/HIV Day.
It is Blog Against Racism Day.
For the record, I'm against Racism and I think AIDS is a scourge which has exposed far too much of our indifference and intolerance already. The folks at HU-Islam have a little blogburst going with some interesting reading. And Simon World has some great AIDS Day links. Much more than anything I'm going to say today.
On the plus side, History Carnival #21 includes such unfortunately necessary correctives as a post detailing it wasn't liberals who supported and underplayed Hitler and torture never worked.
And that's the good news.
Update: No, this is the good news: South Africa's Constitutional Court has ruled in favor of same-sex marriage! That's something to celebrate.
