Roger's Letter to Barbara Walters

Ms. Walters, I'm the webmaster for one of the largest (million+ page hits per month) and oldest sites on the web dealing with information and support for people with herpes: The Original Herpes Home Page.

I was very surprised and disappointed with the content of Joy Behar's "The View" Feb 13th, 2004 program in dealing with the issue of herpes.

In the future, before anyone stigmatizes and makes fun of people with herpes, they should realize that at least 25% of the audience has this virus and that is if you only consider those with genital herpes.

The percentage rises to 80% if you also consider the herpes simplex virus orally as cold sores.

As an exercise, look around you in the studio and count, one, two, three, herpes, one, two, three, herpes and so forth.

Think about it, please.

Herpes is NOT appropriate material for jokes and put-downs from my perspective.
