It’s about 2 gay guys of the same chronological age, but of different cultural ages, going to see a Judy Garland tribute show, and trying to figure out if she still (or should) have a special place in the hearts of gays.

I’m only half-kidding. I have this theory that because of the holocaust that was the AIDS epidemic and its annihilation of the previous generation of gay men, the faith of our fathers risks extinction. Today, Judyism, like Yiddish, is little more than a vague cultural memory.

But, a building is very much like a slinky: a single structure, with some elasticity, being pulled down by gravity. The analogy is even closer if we view a single floor of the WTC as a slinky. And that odd, pancaking, effect as the floors collapsed was each of those slinkys compressing towards the base, and then sending its energy into the next slinky.
