On Distaster Footage from the Department of Homeland Security: January 21, 2008


In which The Gay Recluse ponders the transformation of the monumental into the mundane (and vice versa).

Date of Incident: January 21, 2008

Time: 1:35am.

Causes of Disaster: Failure to implement long-term planning procedures; budget overruns; bureaucratic miscommunication.

Remarks: It was long ago noted that the tube in question was reaching dangerously low and unsustainable levels; procurement requests were initiated at two respective departments but neither exercised adequate oversight of the mounting problem; the loss of the cap excascerbated the situation, as did psychological denial induced at the prospect of a trip to the dentist within less than a week. As a consequence, teeth were not brushed.

Dear readers, we invite you to submit your own disaster footage along with any relevant information (background conditions, attribution, etc.) to thegayrecluse@gmail.com.
