Converstaion between my friend Linda (theatre director at a Job Corps Center) and two students in the art room. Student 1 is drawing a portrait of Student 2.

Student 1: you should do the “Wiz” here- I’d be Diana Ross cause I look just like her.
Student 2: Is that the one with Michael Jackson?
Linda: Yeah, but he doesn’t look anything like he did in “The Wiz” now.
Student 1: His old face was fine. That boy needs to find Jesus or something because that monkey is not working for him.
Student 2: I always wanted a monkey for a pet- for real.
Linda: I don’t know if you’re allowed to do that anymore.
Student 1: Oh yeah- they gave people the AIDS and shit.

Followed by discussion about theories of simian transmission of HIV.
