      Bugaboo

      when
      asked about
      his mental ill-
      ness the
      man told me

      got
      it from
      the
      newspaper

      from
      tele-
      vision

      and
      the radio
      in my
      car

      and
      consider-
      ing that
      the
      aborigines
      of the Amazon
      Africa and
      the Australian
      outback

      are re-
      markably
      free
      of psychoses

      and also
      newspapers
      televisions
      and radio

      there
      is no reason

      not
      to be-
      lieve him.
