DB gave me "All the Rage" by Bob Ostertag to read.

"I want All the Rage to be a piece that speaks to a general, human anger anyone can feel. But first and foremost I want it to be a piece for queers. I wrote it for our anger, for who we are and how we feel with violence coming at us from every side, with the intimate parts of our lives discussed every day in the media by arrogant bigots who have not the slightest clue what they are talking about, with so many of us sick and dying. I wanted All the Rage to end with Hank alone playing his viola, playing the most passionate music I could write. It is a sort of present for Hank, and for Kevin." p. 202
