ANOTHER ATROCITY

 

Brachycephalic. Panels consisting of drive-in theatre personnel, students and middle-income housewives were encouraged to devise the optimum auto-disaster. All week the young woman in the white car had been following her husband like some animal in rut. Deprivation of newsreel and TV screenings led to symptoms of withdrawal and a lowering of general health. As he rested in Catherine Austin's bedroom, Talbot listened to the helicopters flying along the motorway from the airport. As they drove from the town the first billboard appeared - Cinemascope of breast and thigh, deceit and need terraced in the contours of the landscape. He looked down at her naked body, with its unique geometry of touch and feeling, as exposed now as the faces of the test subjects, codes of insoluble nightmares.

Mimetized Disasters. Given present socio-economic conditions, the advisability of maintaining the Vietnam war seems self-evident. Kline and Coma were moving away along the railway track. As the car stopped at the pay kiosk she recognized the man behind the wheel. Where were her own wound areas? Death, by contrast, was a matter of lying prone. As they moved from apartment to apartment along the motorway, Karen Novotny was conscious of the continuing dissociation of the events around her.

Hidden Faces. The fragments of these signs litter the suburban streets for weeks afterwards. As Catherine Austin touched his elbow he realized that he had lost sight of the white car. Travers helped her on to the asphalt verge. In further studies sadistic psychopaths were given the task of devising sex fantasies involving Reagan. His aggressive stare had surprised Travers - seeing himself confused with the psychotic patients was too sharp a commentary on his own role at the Institute, a reminder of his long and wearisome dispute with Nathan. A helicopter soared overhead, its pilot supervising the work of the men on the track.
