The People You Use
Today's Democracy Now! is a must-see/hear/read hour with the professor who unearthed the deliberate infection with syphilis and gonorrhea of almost 700 unknowing Guatemalans in the 1940s in experiments even more shameful than those at Tuskegee—and done by some of the same people.
But hey, they did it to soldiers, prisoners, prostitutes, and mental patients, and what's informed consent to those people, amirite?
Watch/listen/read if you can stand it.
