So many people associated with Warhol's factory met grim ends

Warhol died suddenly during routine surgery, apparently drowning in his own fluids. Edie OD's, as did countless other drag queens. No surprise there -- he worked with lots of druggies, after all -- but what about the others?! Halston: AIDS. Jon Gould: Kaposi's sarcoma (went blind and was down to 70 pounds). Ex-boyfriend Jed Johnson: TWA plane wreck. Ondine: Liver cancer. Paul America was hit by a car while walking home from a dentist appt. Business manager Fred Hughes died of MS. Truman Capote died an empty shell with no friends, his liver pickled. Valerie Solanis died of pneumonia in a fleabag motel. WAS WARHOL CURSED?
