A Jan. 17 Buffalo News headline read, "School aid in governor's budget causes deep concern for Buffalo," and well it should. When we take a close look at the governor's budget, we find $266 million goes to fight AIDS.
The figure for AIDS dollars is far too excessive. Up 30 percent. Wow. Fifteen percent would have been more like it. The other 15 percent could then go to the schools, a far more important budget item than AIDS will ever be.
