Bringing Sexy (and Consumption) Back

Who would've thought that TB could be so fuggin' sexy?!?! This photo from the AP (or perhaps it was Jeff Koons or even Pierre et Gilles) does more to glamorize the disease than any lackluster nineteenth-century painting or even Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge. I wish I was coughing up blood with both of them....

  1. I always wondered how bad TB could really be--after seeing numerous productions of La Boheme and listening to Mimi sing her consumptive lungs out to Rudolfo or Alfredo on her deathbed.
