  1. Love it! That girl is brilliant. She makes sense- she draws the line. She stands her ground. She isn’t rude or violent- just frustrated and determined. And she actually did her research, too. This is what I told my priest too- I am healthy, I am not a leper. We don’t need to be treated as one.

  2. Masks are appropriate in operating rooms and morgues, at crime scenes, after a bombing, a fire, gas leaks,etc.,at Carnivale and Halloween parties. The mask is a must at voodoo tribal ceremonies: like all pagan fetishes, it’s believed to have magical powers to ward off sickness or harm; it transfers power over the body and possession of the soul to apocryphal gods.
    Here’s a famous excerpt from Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera where costumed party-goers mock each other (in vino veritas) and ridicule the absurdity of the spectacle:
    “Masquerade! Paper faces on parade
    Masquerade! Hide your face, so the world will never find you!
    Masquerade! Every face a different shade
    Masquerade! Look around, there’s another mask behind you!
    Flash of mauve, splash of puce, fool and king, ghoul and goose
    Green and black, queen and priest, trace of rouge, face of beast
    Faces, take your turn, take a ride, on the merry-go-round in an inhuman race
    Eye of gold, thigh of blue, true is false. Who is who?
    Curl of lip, swirl of gown, ace of hearts, face of clown…
    “Masquerade! Grinning yellows, spinning reds . . .
    Masquerade! Take your fill – let the spectacle astound you!
    Masquerade! Seething shadows breathing lies . . .
    Masquerade! You can fool any friend who ever knew you!…”
