on Vortex I
I was there briefly, thought there was something sort of contrived about the whole thing but had no idea of the nature of it all. Political genius I must say. Hitch hiked home. I wondered why a Hippie lookin Volkswagen van not full didn't stop but the car behind them did. It was a Christian evangelist. We came around a corner and the van had been hit head on by a heavy old Chevy and there were bodies all over the place. I picked a guy up to get him out of the car and noticed his foot was amputated at the ankle and not even bleeding. The guy who was driving the other car was lying in the road, blue, smelling of alcohol and gasping for air. His wife was kneeling over him and said, "It serves you right you bastard." We did what we could to help a guy who was hanging upside down with blood gushing from his nose. We didn't talk much on the way home. I always wondered who those folks were and now I wonder if that was one of the vans I saw in the film.
