Lippard -2- October 19, 1982 NOW, the ostensible reason for which I'm writing this letter: Your book on Social Change Art, I've written to you about Photo Credits before, probably you were out of the country. Hate to bother you about this. You say you have slide that you're using, from PADD?? I need to know who is the photographer. Promised to always give credit, and this could be important for a photog. to be in your book. If you want I'll come identify in person. or could you send me a [[strikethrough]]xc-r [[/strikethrough]] xerox of it? Or something. WHAT'S UP WITH PADD??????????????????? HAVEN'T HEARD A WORK. RUSSIA AND US ARE PLAYINH WAR GAMES IN SPACE. CAN YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT THEY WOULD DO SOMETHING SO STUPID AS THAT, TO FUCK UP OUTER SPACE. BOYS ARE REALLY DUMB. I LISTEN TO 10 YEAR OLD SON MEIR [MEANS "WHO AGIVES LIGHT"] TALK ABOUT FIGHTING AND ENEMIES AND BATTLES AND SHOOTING, AND THE GROWN UPS ARE REALLY DOING THE SAME THING. THEY'RE NUTS. THE WHOLE TRIBE.
