World Aids day

I guess I just want to register here that it's World Aids Day -- a day once and still too much without art.

Also, Google's logo today memorializes the 55th anniversary of Rosa Parks' refusal to give up her seat:

Google commemorates Rosa Parks

But that's an easy logo to put up now.  And while I'm glad that it's easy, I wish they'd put up something for World Aids day.

(Edited to put "aids" in lower case, following the tweets of D.A. Powell, e.g.: "Not World AIDS Day. It's World Aids Day. Give us the dignity of a word that doesn't stamp us with scarlet letters. Aids is not a crime."  His tweets today are particularly worth following.)
