8 08 2011

This quote, which I tore out of an old City Pages and which has graced my bulletin board since, mm, the late 1990s, was meant to lead off a post on the riots in London.

And then I remembered that I don’t know fuck-all what’s going on over there and should just keep my trap shut.

But the tear-out? It stands on its own.
