      Come to think of it, I can imagine it. If I knew then what I know now, I would have been in culinary school working my ass off, instead of running a book store, hanging out at Mabuhay and Old Waldorf, and publishing a science fiction zine.

    In ’82 I visited the city to see The Police at Cow Palace and spent the night in visiting officer quarters in the Presidio. A friend of mine gave up on the quality of care for AIDS patients at Travis, and when he had to go into the hospital around ’87, he went into Letterman in the Presidio. He died at home in ’90. He was survived by a wife and two sons.
