"Attica! Attica!"

  • This week's top quote:

    "When communist artisans associate with one another, theory, propaganda, etc., is their first end. But at the same time, as a result of this association, they acquire a new need "the need for society" and what appears as a means becomes an end. ... the brotherhood of man is no mere phrase with them, but a fact of life, and the nobility of man shines upon us from their work-hardened bodies." Karl Marx, Human Needs & the division of Labour (1844).

    Continuing luck with your MySpace adventures!

    Just a side note - did you know that film took place in Park Slope?

    I do remember reading that somewhere.

    The still is from that scene in the film where onlookers start cheering Al Pacino when he shouts "Attica! Attica!" over and over again at the police.

    That couldn't happen nowadays, of course. The Park Slope strollers would have no sympathy for Pacino;s plight and would start complaining to the police that the bank robbery is interfering with their ability to get to the Tea Lounge for their mid-morning Sumatra (Takengon) Dark Roast coffee.
