Essay: "Late Victorians." Richard Rodriguez.

Review: San Francisco in the days the gays took over the city, celebrating, and the days when AIDs begins to rob young men of their lives. A meditation.

Quote: St. Augustine: “…we are restless hearts, for earth is not our true home. Human unhappiness is evidence of our immortality. Intuition tells us we are meant for some other city.”

Quote: San Francisco: “…sexually democratic city.”

Quote: “I saw that the greater sin against heaven was my unwillingness to embrace life.”
