Lovely, chaotic slice of real life and naive fantasy, 14 June 2006
Author: CastleRockCutie from Brooklyn, NY

First: To ctimber@hotmail.com: "Why was an illness introduced so clumsily...?" Why, indeed? I'm sure the gay community asked that same question in the early eighties... Look, this is not a personal attack. It's just a reminder that "Gay Cancer"//GRID//HIV/AIDS did the same thing to the whole downtown scene in real life as it did in the movie. It introduced an ugly, horrific plague into what I call with sheerly complimentary intent, a magical fairyland. Now, fairyland is not without trolls, ogres, and nixies, not even without persistent, incurable poxes; or sores cured by sage, potion-wielding wizards and witches with long, white coats.

But when a plague like the ones that touch humans touches Fairyland, well, that's just about as scary as can be....
