Marian Wright Edelman

I have had lots of friends who've been affected by Aids and a very good friend of mine, Oscar Moore, died of Aids and I was with him in his last year quite a bit. And of course he was a man living in a very rich culture with a wealthy family who was able to afford health care.
If I wasn't bound to Brooklyn, due to my own personal reasons like taking care of my mother and the fact that this is where the band is based, I would probably move to Iceland.
Words, which are the dress of thoughts, deserve surely more care than clothes, which are only the dress of the person.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield

Dee Dee Myers
