Cathode Ray Fairy


Of course, "O'Blivion" was not the name I was born with. That's my television name. Soon, all of us will have special names -- names designed to cause the cathode ray tube to resonate.

Henrico County, Va. -- Nearly a year after a Glen Allen neighborhood woke up to find dozens of vintage box television sets sitting on their front porches, the strange circumstance has happened again. [...]

Lt. Matt Pecka with Henrico Police said more than one person "wearing a mask resembling a television" dropped off the TVs to "the majority of homes throughout the community." [...] Henrico Police and Solid Waste Divisions worked together to remove the more than 50 TVs.

    Rydell had gotten the idea that these people figured video was the Lord's preferred means of communicating, the screen itself a kind of perpetually burning bush. "He's in the de-tails," Sublett had said once. "You gotta watch for Him close."
