Three Interesting Things

1. If, like me, you learned a lot of what you know about the early days of AIDS research from "And the Band Played On", there was a crucial misunderstanding about a patient who had been coded as patient O (like October) and it got transcribed into patient 0 (like zero). 
2. Gene Demby wrote about how his trip to Ghana for a friend's wedding had him reflecting on his parentage.  
3. And I stumbled across this older piece where Kaui Hart Hemmings talked about her adoption, and the power of a new name at 11.
