If you, my friend, are not acquainted with the juvenile justice system, you will be very shortly.  –  cop, to autistic 7-year-old

Although she had several high-profile hits, this is the one I think of when Irene Cara’s name comes up, and the lyrics are certainly the most fitting to commemorate her passing.

I find paywalls distasteful, and so many people find this blog valuable as a resource I just can’t bring myself to install one.  Furthermore, I find ad delivery services (whose content I have no say over) even more distasteful.  But as I’m now semi-retired from sex work, I can’t self-sponsor this blog by myself any longer.  So if you value my writing enough that you would pay to see it if it were paywalled, please consider subscribing; there are four different levels to fit all budgets.  Or if that doesn’t work for you, please consider showing your generosity with a one-time donation; you can Paypal to maggiemcneill@earthlink.net or else email me at the same address to make other arrangements.  Thanks so much!
