On Brokeback Mountain, the weather changed from day to day.

Annie Proulx's response to a FAQ (as found on her Web site):

"Brokeback began as an xamination of country homophobia in the land of the Great Pure Noble cowboy."

Ennis lived his life under the yoke of self-loathing and homophobia, both of which were ingrained in him from his childhood days.

"Annie Proulx's editor at the men's magazines she used to write for suggested that she take a pen name, something like Joe or Zack (according to the New Yorker)."   Front-Ranger used this in Round 19 at the site that will remain nameless!   Thanks, so we can move on to the next round!   :D
