Don't expect to see many reports of this

Particularly given the Damilola Taylor result dominating the papers and the airport security alert radio and TV..

.. but, at fucking last, there's been an acquittal in a UK HIV tranmission trial. A clueful defence team, helped by THT, used a combination of expert evidence and the behaviour of the complainant to show that there was no proof of who had, in fact, infected who.

In comparison to the large and instant flow of stories following last month's conviction of Sarah Porter - where someone she'd had sex with heard rumours about her being HIV+, knew they hadn't been infected, but complained to the police who launched a year-long investigation into her sex life until they found one who had been - I can only find three reports on this on Google News.

Yesterday, at last I had time to look back on my LJ flist to see what happened while I was away.

I thought there was a limit on the size of the possible 'skip' back when repeatedly asking for "previous 15 entries", but it turns out that it's 'nothing past fourteen days'.

Grrr.

Anyway, I now have about 300 tabs of interesting posts to look through...
