One of the more unexpectedly insightful passages in Spook Country:

  

He looked up at a 1992 calendar, level with his eyes, and about ten inches away. Someone had quit pulling the months off, in August. It advertised a commercial real estate firm, and was decorated with a drastically color-saturated daytime photograph of the New York skyline, complete with the black towers of the World Trade Center. These were so intensely peculiar-looking, in retrospect, so monolithically sci-fi blank, unreal, that they now seemed to Milgrim to have been Photoshopped into every image he encountered them in. (pg 92)

 An interview with Charles Manson's webmaster.

 

"As for having access to the web, the web is my mind. I brought the web into play. The web is my church." - Manson himself.

 

Somehow, that seems accurate. And poetic. My students will be composing a poem using "The web is my church" as the first line.
