Connections connections.... It is my understanding (I make a conscious
effort to qualify my statements here...) that statistics show that a
greater percentage of artistic occupations have a much higher percentage
of homosexuals than does the general population.

I guess it is the reason that a good percentage of my friends are gay.
And since we survived the 60's I would guess that a good percentage of
us (my off list friends) also have used non legal substances.

I remain glad that creativity exists and that anyone can be creative
