Yesterday's Menace

I remember reading one of those James Clavell novels about a British Taipan in Hongkong. While overseeing some matters one fine day, he was approached by a man who heard that he had found the herpes cure. The Taipan remarked that if he had, he would be the richest man in the world and he need not work anymore. Indeed, during that that time, herpes had no known cure and its much like the aids that threatens the world today.
