of total of- fenses. Crimes against persons (insults to honor, threats, and violence) made up 15.9 percent of the caseload, and administrative infractions (mostly passport violations, breaking of fire regulations, and bootlegging) claimed 16.8 percent.33 During 1905, the five land captains of one Riazan' district heard 629 criminal cases, of which 369 (58.7 percent) were property offenses. Nearly half of this number (172 cases, or 27.3 percent of all crimes) involved theft of wood from forests. Infractions of fire safety regula- tions accounted for another 8

the black box with which we began. But we have recently been vouchsafed an accidental view of what the contents of that black box might be, because of an interesting story that has emerged from recent writing by, and about, Christopher Alexander and his "timeless way of building". Looking back on the early days of his "pattern language", he revealed one of its apparent failures to his biographer, Stephen Grabow: Bootleg copies of the pattern language were floating up and down the west coast, and people would come and show me the projects they had done, and I

large tax increase will lead to bootlegging and other crime problems, yet the measure provides no new money to assist law enforcement. 24 Only 5% of the tax revenues would go to research on tobacco-related diseases. 4 1 The cigarette tax is a regressive tax that hits hardest at blue-collar working men and women. 29 This 2.50% tax increase would make Cali- fornia's tobacco tax one of the highest in the country. 44 Llat'l from C .

- ing ourselves; the ongoing social and economic dangers, not to say the hypocrisy of keeping millions as legal Untermenschen in a nation that professes equality and equal opportunity. We have our violent Mexican drug gangs, just as we had our violent (mostly Italian and Jewish) gangs of bootleggers, but significantly, unlike Britain, Spain, or Germany, we haven’t yet experienced any acts of homegrown terrorism, nor, as far as we know, have any terrorist acts elsewhere been launched by American- grown bombers. (The one exception, the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P

recipes render them intellectual bootleggers of a sort. (I confess to constantly adapting themes and approaches from European intellectual and cultural history in order to explore southwestern Minnesota.) They forever must ask how capricious and arbitrary is their making of a place. Writing itself also causes discomfort. As much as the practice of local history might gain the local historian recognition, the work is lonely work. Companionship at times amounts to no more than a handful of colleagues and friends.

previous year by La Monte Young’s foundational text of repetitive musical minimalism, arabic number (any integer) to Henry Flynt. Young had dedicated his Composition 1960 #10 (“Draw a straight line and follow it”) to Morris, and in 1961 he recorded a performance of arabic number in which he rhythmically pounded 1,698 times on a piano with both forearms as loud as he could. As a work that dramatically foregrounds the labor of composition/performance and just as theatrically resists commodification (Young’s recording, though widely bootlegged, has never been authorized for
