I can't believe B. Ruby Rich mentioned Brokeback Fever! I wrote that! I wonder if she read my stuff?

I first read "Brokeback Fever" some time ago, long before I found my way to BetterMost. I work in a large teaching hospital in Sydney, Australia, and it was e-mailed to me by a friend. I distributed it widely to friends and colleagues alike. Little did I know at the time that I would one day come to know the author.

It's a fabulous piece, Leslie. I love it.   :D

Leslie, you should post that "Brokeback Fever again....somewhere where the newer members will be able to read it.....

It is the best description I've ever read about what we are feeling...
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

It is over on the fanfiction board. I just gave it a bump so it is at the top of the list right now.

Did you all see Heath being mentioned at the Oscars?

It was him in the Brokeback Mountain movie!

At the begining, at the trailer where he awaits for his job!

What do you think of that?

Hugs!

I guess I was hoping for something a little more elaborate, but I can see why it would have been hard for them to make a big deal about Heath in comparison to Ingmar Bergman. Or even former AMPAS president Jack Valenti.

I wonder, though, if they changed the dates of deaths -- from calendar year 2007 to Jan 31, 2007 to Feb. 1, 2008, or whatever it was -- so they could include Heath while he was still fresh in everyone's minds.

Not that he won't always be fresh in some people's minds, of course.  :-\ :-\
