    Thanks for posting!
    I live in SFO and what happens in NYC can get to SFO quicktime.

    And, after nearly two years of being a monk, I'm getting ready to cut loose again.

    I get my private life back on April 3rd.

    Why exactly is this warning specifically targeted at gay men?
    Do gay men not share utensils, drinks, etc. with straight people as well?

    Anyways, that is very scary. Meningitis is deadly and once you contract it it's been known to kill people within 24 hours... definitely take this seriously. I may even get vaccinated myself if cases increase.

    Well, this happens with high school kids as well. So, they get vaccinated. You might ask the same question in regards to that. Why specifically high school students, as they share drinks utensils etc with people not in high school. icon_wink.gif

    All it is I believe is addressing a demographic that is having a problem with meningitis.
