To Cut or not to Cut

Mohels to Mozambique

Last fall, reporting on a randomized controlled trial in South Africa, scientists found that circumcision reduced female-to-male transmission by 60 percent.

Think about that: surgery as a vaccine. Drug researchers would kill for an HIV vaccine half as effective as circumcision.

Agree 100% with Mad Hatter. You know the old saying, "If it bleeds, it leads"? Well, they ought to modify it to, "If a cute white kid gets abducted/murdered, it leads (even if the abduction/murder happened 10 years ago)."

And I know a good mohel if anyone needs one. :)
