Very bad news.

(CNN) -- Doctors reported for the first time Wednesday the ominous spread of a strain of the AIDS virus that is resistant to protease inhibitors, the medicines
that have revolutionized care of the disease.

I also heard on an NPR sidebar that there is apparently a drug-resistant strain that converts to full-blown AIDS much faster than the old-style HIV.

God. What if we just spent a third of the money we spend invading other countries on microscopic killers, instead?

This could be a very bad thing for the already floundering health-care system.
