The Wisdom of Whores.

“If there are two things that make human beings a little bit irrational, they are erections and addiction.”

In response to Elizabeth’s comment on my post “Why Treat a Problem You Can Criminalize?“, I am posting Elizabeth Pisani‘s TED talk on the irrationality behind public health decisions surrounding HIV/AIDS. In addition to being hilarious (see above quote), the Oxford-educated Pisani knows what she’s talking about.

Enjoy!
