Raise your eyes
Dear Overzealous Rent-a-Cop Security Consultant:

I am pleased to announce that I have taken photos of the building you are charged with protecting. Initially, I acquiesced to your objections based on what you deemed to be necessary for "security," but upon further reflection, I returned and got the shots. Though I could appreciate your concerns if I was attempting to shoot on premises, I am unaware that you possess the authority to prohibit me from using my camera while I am standing on a public thoroughfare.

In retrospect, I wish I had managed to get a picture of you while enraged at my failure to comply with your demands. That would have been sweet.

What makes me sad about the whole affair is that when I explained what I was looking at and what I was doing, you just stood there, incapable of seeing and utterly uncomprehending. In an instant, it was clear that you had never looked up at the building you work in every day. And while I commend you for the professionalism that your single line of thought and bullheadedness suggests, I am very sorry that it came at the price of your curiosity.

Respectfully,
-P

Is this one of the jewelry store rent-a-cops that litter Washington Street?

How'd you guess?

It's almost too easy not to guess (for anyone that works around here at least).

Watching all that "bling" must be tremendously boring work.

Paranoia strikes deep.

Ever wonder why artists & writers are the first to go in any totalitarian purge?

Well, don't. Sit down, shut up and get back to work. Life is toil and the world is ugly. Got it?

I thought so.

There's really not much to wonder about, is there? It's not just artists and writers, it's anyone who asks questions or thinks outside the box (unless, of course, that thinking can somehow be harnessed for to produce something useful for the state...)

I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with the project yet. Probably have something up by week's end.
