Deaths from Staph Infections pass AIDS Infections

In a story to chill the hearts of both the evolution deniers, and their cousins, the ones who don't understand the problems with over prescribing antibiotics, deaths due to staph infections now may exceed those caused by AIDS. We apparently have a new super bug:

"The new study offers the broadest look yet at the pervasiveness of the most severe infections caused by the bug, called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA."

I guess the Intelligent Design crowd will attribute this to the gods designing these diseases to frustrate our medical efforts. Nice guys.
