Thrillseeking

Now that Evel Knievel is dead , here is the next generation of daredevils.

At first I thought the video below had to be of flying squirrels. Or something from Lord of the Rings, but no. They are base jumpers in France.

They probably won't live very long--scraping their nails against the side of a mountain at 100 miles an hour--but what a thrilling way to go. Click here. This is living!

I just got my hands on an old issue of OUT, with your "Voices," piece. How appropriate the same week of World AIDS Day. I find your writing thought-provoking and it sucks me right in. I can't stop reading what you have to say. Thank you for saying it.
