J Edgar Hoover

The 'Director', J. Edgar Hoover,
was a racist, body remover.
He was obsessed with '"neutralizing" the good Dr. King,
and anyone else who happened to be ethnic or left wing.

    Chris, I am ashamed to admit, this guy is an Iowan son. I remember visiting his great "home" back in Iowa near Iowa city. I bet he was a real scumbag from what I've heard. Yeah, you mentioned in the blog that this was dark. I need to study them out but I thin they should be more whimsical by nature. And yes, irregular lines means of any random size. Once again, I need to find examples from the originator for a clue as to whether he preferred shorter lines or not. Thanks for blog comments!
