last night K was telling F and me about the unofficial reason for the Kinetic Sculpture race. it was for Hobart Brown an "up yours" to the Catholic priests of the area who were "doing what Catholic priests are known to do". Hobart would pilot a 12-person bicycle "bus" with a bottle of champagne, and scantily-clad ladies in fishnet up front with him.
K said the priests all eventually died of AIDS contracted in the bathhouses of San Francisco.
