    It seems typical of America that the answer to "so what happens if you have a life-threatening condition and need crucial medicines to stay alive" is "it's complicated and there are a lot of cracks to fall through"

    This went about the way I expected, but I wish they had selected a black actor who matched the white guy in size and stature, rather than age.

    Because honestly, the black actor cut a much less intimidating figure. Race surely plays a part here, obviously, but the black actor is simply scrawnier, less physically imposing, and that plays into it as well.

    People would have been less emboldened, I believe, if the black actor had been as large as the white actor.

    Perhaps, but alternatively maybe they would have been even more aggressive because he would have fit more the stereotypical image of a young black male criminal

    in either case I agree it would have been better to try to equalize those differences

    Problem is I can't imagine any insurance company paying for HIV medicine for any extended length of time. They'd go bankrupt.

    Probably less than 7 hours the past two days. Though I usually have no trouble. I think it's probably the stress as it happened about halfway through today right after release went out and calls poured in about new features.
