It's World AIDS Day. Do something.
The Chron did a week-long series earlier this year to mark the 25th anniversary of AIDS in a city which has been, of course, particularly shattered by the epidemic. This link will take you to any number of articles, charts, links, etc. Really very touching and eye-opening.
It's definitely worth a look.
