  1. Hey Andy,

    I'm surprised you haven't reported on this yet, but Alex Freyre and José María Di Bello (the Argentine couple set to marry today) were barred from doing so this morning by a federal judge. Apparently the judge wants the Supreme Court of Argentina to rule on the matter.

  2. Sweden's new policy seems very reasonable, as it brings having sex with another guy into the exact same risk profile as a woman having sex with a guy who had sex with a guy. If you haven't shown any sign of infection (as measured by the obligatory blood testing, not outward symptoms!) within a year, you're not going to.
