Tales of Fluffya: Perestroika
Someone wrote on one of the various perpetual construction walls by City Hall MR. GORBACHEV, TAKE THIS WALL DOWN.
I took a photo as a cop waiting at a nearby newsstand watched.
Cop (smirking): “Reagan did that!”
Me: “Russia did that to itself!”
Cop: (continues smirking but has no idea what I’m talking about)
At least I wasn’t taking a photo of IF MUMIA BURNS PHILLY BURNS.
