Show Description
The age of junk mail - Shep is going through all the mail that has accumulated during his trip to Australia. He reads from a trade journal for a state penitentiaries. Story about prisoners that rebelled about returning to their cells until the TV show they were watching was over. Guards had to use tear gas. They were watching The Fugitive! He reads some of the names from the gossip column. Americans are the great dreamers of the world. The paradox of what man thinks he is and what he really is. Censorship is very tough in Australia, but their view of what should be censored and what shouldn't is vague and confusing. Westerns, the significance of busting mirrors and bottles. Sling shots in Germany - they have peep sights and are very sophisticated
