L.D.: It just seems to be a kitsch festival, with everything from the Scum [aka Vancouver Sun] running a laughable recipe for Toad in the Hole to obscene slavering over Princess Diana's grisly death.

L.B:Yeah. Stockholm Syndrome.
I'm interested in the way these emblems of power (now hollow) cast this kind of spell on the masses. Perhaps it's fevered gratitude for making concrete and visible the emblems of domination and violence that now hide in the shadows of the market economy and are buried in the obvious of the day-to-day.
Nothing's worse than the devil you don't know.
