Things found while cleaning the office: Illinois, Iowa and the Iroquois nation. Well, the Iroquois nation was just for alliteration. The states are in the form of AAA maps from the late eighties. Apparently it was an era of pastel washes meant to represent state specific scenes. The cover of the Iowa map shows a combine wading through a field of corn; there’s a view of Lake Shore Drive with a red convertible driven by a smiling white couple for Illinois. The shit I keep. Iowa? I went once to watch my father die and I won’t be going back.
