The city of Los Angeles wanted to tear down Simon Rodia's supreme achievement. If any of the bureaucracts who were responsible for trying to do this are still alive, be hereby informed that I detest you w/ all my heart & soul. May there be a hell just so you can suffer eternal torments there. I only have a photocopy of this essential pamphlet - thanks to my friend Yael Ruth Dragwyla for giving me this! For those of you who've been living w/ a blindfold on in a cave - or, alternately, who watch prime time tv &'ve thereby rotted yr brain away beyond all hope - & who, therefore, don't know about Rodia's Watts Towers, LOOK THEM UP! Simon Rodia was a poor Italian immigrant who built these towers (the tallest is 99 feet) out of scrap materials in his spare time over 33 yrs. No hyperbole cd possibly praise them enuf. People harrassed him when he made them & he eventually gave away the land & left. To the people who harrassed him: being tortured wd be too good for you - you shd be stuck up George Bush's asshole & left there to feed yr way out. That wd solve 2 problems at once. Thank goodness, the towers are protected as a park now. I LOVE YOU SIMON RODIA!!
