@doctorow Why does this photo exist?
So, Gremlins is a Christmas film - or should I say critique of America's economic system??? I've never seen it before, but it's in the background as I'm doing other work. References to domestic vs foreign automobiles, "exotic" Chinese gifts, greed-is-good type characters ("I want your dog!"), must-have Xmas toys, down on their luck small-time townies, Xmas as a TV mediated mass-media experience, the YMCA pool as a dangerous thing, drunk cops, "I told you we should have got a Zenith!"

@doctorow - Well well well - a way to escape death. Die in Adams County, IL without any money and you will never officially die.

@doctorow There's a PKD novel with a cover like this.
