The Shits Hit the Fan (gotta call my neighbor)!!!
This phrase rings through the 3rd issue. All of our friends live in structures with walls. They have their own phones, sidewalks and driveways that connect them to other houses. This issue comes out before the 2004 Presidential Election with its surreal allusions to holistic “democratic� community. Our response to this moment is to think about ways to strengthen our homes and networks, to better serve ourselves and those we are in solidarity with. No matter whom we vote for, the government still wins and Schwarzenegger isn’t coming to tow my broke-down car.
