"Politicians think the voters in this country are stupid . . . that's just not true

WHAT THE PEOPLE NEED is more information --

data. Then they'll know what to think."--Chairman of the G.O.P.


alone, except for TV

his mask electrons flickering mosquito wingbeat meter

a broadcast going out he had to hear

see, feel

or else


because it was always because of the fear they'd bred, instilled

that they would do it

THEY would DO IT

and there'd be hell



stocks were falling, children starving

while horses et themselves

`twas a bane night coming

by desert sailor's morning

warnings he knew well


so he stayed by the telechatter

lived by burgeoning news

talked, walked, dreamed wars

it was data



he wanted

data input, news
