Re: [carfree_cities] Running on Fumes: A Journey to the End of Empire
- Phil Rockstroh describes himself as "a self-confessed gasbag monologist ...
a poet and a musician who lives in the East Village section of New York
City. For many years he was the de facto ghost writer for the endlessly
touring, perpetually self-promoting, performance "poet"/musician, Chris
Chandler, with whom Phil shares writing blame for Protection from All this
Safety, a book of poetry and satire (Portals Press, 1997, ISBN: 0916620301).
And the illustrations are by Angela Tyler-Rockstroh ... a Broadcast
Designer/Animator working with major Networks such as Cartoon Network,
Disney Channel, HBO Family, PBS, etc. She also creates satirical graphics
for Phil Rockstroh

Simon - with thanks Karen for pointing me to these two heart warming
examples of why I will never fall out of love with America.
