Snuff It #1
After many months of careful preparation, as the first light appeared in
the clear skies of Monday, September 13, 1993, Rev. Korda and agent Dan
climbed down from a billboard overlooking the Massachusetts Turnpike and
made their getaway. A giant black banner with bold white letters that read
SAVE THE PLANET KILL YOURSELF hung from the top of the billboard, rippling
slightly in the early morning breeze. For the next 36 hours hundreds of
thousands of motorists were exposed to pure Dada as they approached the
Allston/Cambridge exit. Many of them received long exposures due to the
heavy rush hour traffic. What thoughts, if any, went through the minds of
these hapless motorists? The Rev. had originally planned to do "exit"
polls at the Allston toll booths, but this proved too dangerous, so we can
Naturally, the Rev. returned to scene of the crime later that morning to take
pictures, accompanied by agent Andy and his hand-held video camera. They
drove past the billboard several times. Then agent Andy persuaded the Rev. to
pull over onto the shoulder in front of the billboard for a better shot. They
raised the hood, got out of the car, and were shooting away when the state
police arrived seconds later. Fortunately the Rev. had thought ahead for once
and put electrical tape over her SAVE THE PLANET KILL YOURSELF bumper sticker.
They told the pigs everything was okay, ran back to the car, and drove away,
fully expecting pursuit, but nothing happened. The Lord was definitely backing
the Church of Euthanasia that morning.
