world. An armed truce exists this morning. What this town needs
is a voice of authority. (Authority enters with a can of tomato
juice, pours into plastic glass so that audience does not mistake
the contents. Places can on pedestal with name facing audience.
Delivers his lines in an angry mood.)
We're going to employ every force of law that we have under our
authority.....we are going to employ every weapon possible. (Takes
can and glass, departs. Enter Jeffrey.)
(Jeffrey is dressed in Levis, shirttail out, and with a head band
under the forelock of his long hair.)
I am one of the accusers. My name was Jeffrey Glenn Miller. My
major was psychology and I could be what you'd call an outside
agitator....except that I'm not. Someone said I was an outsider because
I was a transfer from Michigan State in January. I was always an
American first....my home is in Plainview, New York. They draft
from Plainview just like they draft from East Lansing and this town.
On Saturday night, I went to the only tourist attraction in town....
when they burned down the Rottsy building. I sat down on the grass
and took it all in. It was dark, but I figure through the flames
I got part of my message over....(uses both hands to give the Up
Your's universal sign). A spokesman of authority did employ every
weapon possible for that moment. (Slowly places a second M-l bullet
on pedestal. Departs.)
