Nit-Picking: Not even sure if bird flu existed in 2001. First documented cases were in 2004.
A pretty good story, though.
Che was a total clown and anyone who follows him is a misguided, lost soul desperate for a strong figure to latch onto. All Che had were some brave-sounding quotes, even as “revolutionary” and terrorist he couldn’t get it done. Total loser.

So this was phenomenal.

Ah, so much for mystery.

Tactful and sincere, this story makes me smile in a awkward kind of way. I must say wonderful job, Ms. Lovell, wonderful job.
Beautifully written and so compelling! Wonderful work Angie!

AWESOME!!! in every way! go ahead and file this under GOLD!
Dear Miss Lovell,
It seems to me that you have some fucked up friends. I should know, after all I am a doctor.
This story is brilliant and disturbing.

Very moving, very subtle. And short, which is how I like my short stories. Gold star, young lady.
