8vo. Single sheet folded once. Fine. A critique of the 1992 natural disaster from an American surrealist perspective, setting quotes from concerned politicians next to quotes from workers happy to get the day off of work. While noting that "natural calamities" usually disproportionately victimize the poor, the flood gave a quarter million workers a paid day off of work, and the homeless had a feast because in the absence of refrigeration restaurants and stores cooked their meat and fed it to the homeless.
