THIS IS AN INVITATION TO SWEEP IN MY PARADE AS A MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC MEDIA. AND ONE WHO CAN "HANDLE" CROSS OVERS BETWEEN ACTIVE PARTICIPATION AND SEPARATION OF PRESS ETC ETC ETC. I SENT YOU OFFICIAL INVITE THROUGH THE VILLAGE VOICE ALONG WITH CARRIE RICKEY WHO WORTE LONG ARTICLE ABOUT TOUCH SANITATION PERFORMANCE IN VV IN NOV. XX 1979.

AM ENCLOSING XEROX OF COPY OF LETTER TO PUBLIC MEDIA,& other stuff FOR YOUR DUPLICATIVE INFO. IN CASE YOU DON"T PICK UP YOUR MAIL AT VV. & RELEASES FROM VARIOUS ACTORS IN THIS SYSTEM.

THEY ARE BEGINNING TOMORROW TO WORK ON THE MIRROR TRUCK. TOO NUMEROUS SREW UPS TO MENTION, BEYOND BELIEF, SWEEPERS STILL NOT WORKED OUT THE MECHANICAL AND HUMAN.

HOPE YOU CAN "DO" it.

Love
Mierle
