FOUND by Jason Feifer in The East Village, New York City, New York
I picked a little pad up off the street in the East Village on Saturday — the day after the horrible school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut — and opened to find this page. Not entirely sure of the message, but I’m going to just hope it’s in support of gun control, and against killing drugged out ninjas in dresses on skis.
I found this old photograph along with some others in the flea market. I was pretty sad to see someone throw away a photo with such character. These men lived only 60 years ago, and no one cared to keep this picture of them.
While volunteering with a local organization a few years back, I was responsible for sorting through stacks and stacks of book donations. Among the books, I often found photos, notes, bookmarks, and other stray objects. This was perhaps the most disturbing note I ever found. I hope it’s mere fiction, but fear otherwise. We have our share of paranoid conspiracy theorists and survivalists living in the mountains around here.
