    AIDS was relentless, killing in weeks or months sometimes, often after ravaging people with blindness, ks, incontinence, and a thousand other indignities.

    The situation described in the diary suggests a different set of relationships and I don't get a sense that the core 4-5 have the necessary sense of urgency.
