Wait for it...wait for it...okay, NOW!

The news the other day said that 1,000,000 people in America now have AIDS. This was on the front page of the papers (obviously, this was before the Jackson acquittal). Front page news, one million Americans with AIDS. So my question is, why wasn't this front page news when we had 843,324 cases? Or 654,101? Or 712,239?

Nice round number, one million. Were the powers that be just waiting for that morbid odometer to roll over before alerting us?
