This week we provide you with some resources to research the geographic distribution of AIDS and HIV in the US and worldwide. Also, we'll include a brief section with articles on "Latte Cities" to complement the piece on Bobos in Paradise featured in this week’s People section. In the third vignette, we present some resources for researching the "graying of America" and northwest states.
