Please, oh please, Marshal Phillips, stop blaming me, then everyone but the individual for personal misfortune. In his column about AIDS, Phillips blames the high infection rate among gay males to have partly resulted "by society's lack of support in promoting stable couples among that population." What about the other part--the part about personal responsibility? Sorry, but I am not taking the blame for one more AIDS victim, drug addict, illiterate dropout, criminal or greedy deviant.
As is easy to see, society is deteriorating at a frightening rate, producing and looking the other way at these weaknesses. And the rest of the population is forced to carry the burden of every over-aged, irresponsible crybaby who squeals. Enough!
