Back to 10th Street, where we last saw the Scribbler had admonished us to boycott the movies, because smoking is illegal in cinemas. Now, in fresh ink, he lends support to former Northern Exposure actress and tea-partier Janine Turner, who runs the Constituting America website.
The Scribbler tells us that Janine is being blacklisted by the "internazis" of Red Hollywood, who resemble "vermin like psychotherapists and 3-term mayors."
And while the Scribbler strongly supports our right to smoke in public, he launches this attack on Hollywood for teaching us to smoke in the first place, an indication that the Scribbler might feel some ambivalence about cigarettes.
Further down the plywood, we see a compatriot of the Scribbler has provided some cryptic mathematics:
Bloomberg = 8 yrs =/+ 11 BILL
Smokers 8 yrs, 10-12-PACK
What could it mean except: "Smoking Good, Bloomberg Bad"? And fascism lives. "But," says a newcomer in barely legible ballpoint, "smokers don't." Live, that is. "Be grateful!"
The addition of the Communist hammer and sickle might indicate the red politics of this writer, which I will call the Communist Smoker. It also begs the intriguing question: Could the anti-Red Scribbler and the Communist Smoker be on the same side? Could they be alters of the same individual?
