A child born with HIV has apparently been cured in Mississippi, scientists confirmed yesterday, marking only the second time in history a patient with this disease was able to fight it off entirely.

The announcement was made yesterday at an AIDS meeting in Atlanta, as Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health said of the now-two-and-a-half-year old:

So, this actually happened in Pennsylvania this week...

When a receptionist from an Ambridge doctor's office phoned to remind student Travis Clawson that he had an upcoming appointment, the call went to voicemail.

No biggie, right?

Except the receptionist heard the words "shooting" and "school" on the message… which led her to contact the police… who notified school officials… who instituted a lockdown of every school in the country.

After 20 minutes, Clawson was finally tracked down in the guidance office and it was determined that the receptionist simply heard the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song on his voicemail, which refers to "shooting some ball outside of the school."

Andrew Sullivan, a prominent Catholic and columnist for The Dish and other publications, suggests that the outgoing Pope Benedict may be secretly gay.

The comment stemmed from the recent announcement that Benedict will not go into hidden retirement but will instead continue living in the Vatican.

Pope Benedict, Georg Gaenswein

Sullivan, himself openly gay, speculates that Pope Benedict's relationship with secretary Archbishop Georg Gaenswein is the impetus behind that.

In a post titled, "Two Popes, One Secretary," writes that "something truly weird is going on" between Benedict and Gaenswein, a.k.a. "Gorgeous Georg."
