Sometimes sunny weather can be a bad thing. Learn why in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:39 Explanations: 3:34 Fast dialog: 14:17 Fabian: How long do you think this drought is going to last? Lia: I have no idea, but I’m not worried. I grew up in the desert. Not having enough precipitation was just a fact of life. Fabian: Yes, but people here aren’t used to getting this little rainfall. Their livelihood depends on having a reliable water supply for their crops. Lia: You make it sound like we’re experiencing another Dust Bowl when the water table is just a little low. Fabian: I think it’s a little more serious than that. Lia: What we need here is a reservoir. That would give this town the water reserves it needs in case of a drought. Fabian: What we really need are fewer dust storms and more thunderstorms. Lia: And for people to stop over farming. That and deforestation are half the problem. Fabian: You may be right, but that’s not what people want to hear right now. They need some relief. Lia: Maybe the town’s water conservation efforts will make a difference. Fabian: Well, I’m certainly willing to stop bathing if it’ll help. Lia: I thought you already had. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
