Mastering the obvious

Perhaps the AJC will have to share the prize for the week's worst headline. Brace yourself for some shocking news from Reuters:

San Francisco may be world's gayest city: report

It's estimated one in five of the city's males are homosexual. That number jumps to six out of every five in the Castro neighborhood.

Unfortunately, about 25 percent of them are infected with HIV. Surprisingly, Baltimore has the country's highest ratio of HIV positive men, a whopping 40 percent.


  1. Six out of every five? That's some neat math.

  2. That would be sarcastic math.

  3. It's a nice match for my sarcastic tone, no?.

    So were the 25 and 40% also just for giggles?
