• 838 girls aged 14-19 were tested in 2003-04 for four STIs:  human papillomavirus (HPV), Chlamydia, herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2), and trichomoniasis (trick-a-mon-ia-sis or trick).  They were NOT tested for syphilis, HIV, or gonorrhea.
• Most common STIs:  HPV 18.3%, Chlamydia 3.9%, trichomoniasis 2.5%, and HSV-2 1.9%.
• Overall STI prevalence is 26%, meaning 1 in 4 girls have a STD – that's 3.2 million girls.
• Half the girls were virgins.  40% of non-virgins had a STI.
• 20% of white girls had a STI.  48% of African American girls had a STI.
! •• That's 1 in 5 white girls, and half of all black girls have a STI.
! •• That's half of girls 19 years old currently have or have had a STI.
• Among girls who reported just one lifetime partner, 20.4% had a STI.
• Among girls with three or more partners, 50% had a STI.
> At your high school, assume that one in four girls have an STD.  If they've had only one sexual partner, they've got a one in four chance of having an STD.  But, if they've had three or more partners, they have a 50-50 chance of having an STD.

• Houston Chronicle, Ferraro says Obama is where he is because he's black.  Would it be different if Obama was white or a woman?  Are Democrats more sensitive to race than to gender?  Has the press been more hard on Hillary than on Obama?
Geraldine Ferraro told The Daily Breeze of Torrance, Calif., in an interview published last Friday, "If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position, and if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept…I think what America feels about a woman becoming president takes a very secondary place to Obama's campaign — to a kind of campaign that it would be hard for anyone to run against.  For one thing, you have the press, which has been uniquely hard on her. It's been a very sexist media. Some just don't like her. The others have gotten caught up in the Obama campaign."
