A thousand drops- all prop 8 supporters should have to read
This article in tomorrow's NY TImes magazine.

A Thousand Drops


After Brian has brushed his teeth, after he has swallowed a fistful of pills, after he has injected Neupogen into the fraction of fat he can pinch from his belly, he dons a pair of pajamas and says, Im ready to get plugged in. He means hes ready for me to connect him to the Flo-Gard, a small computerized machine thats clamped onto the IV pole beside our bed. Every night for eight hours, a rich, synthetic liquid called total parenteral nutrition is infused into his bloodstream, fattening every cell. Or so we keep hoping. Brian developed a resistance to antiretroviral medication after volunteering for drug trials in the 1980s, and now infusions are the last treatment left to slow his rapid weight loss from AIDS.
