Photo essay on RAW's reality tunnels

The Guardian newspaper in Great Britain has published a photo essay built around a Robert Anton Wilson quote about reality tunnels. This is quite a bit of publicity for Bob -- the Guardian is a big deal newspaper, kind of the equivalent of the New York Times or the Washington Post.

The photographs are part of the Guardian's Camera Club feature. The caption says, "Croydon promises to be the perfect setting for this visual exploration of Robert Anton Wilson's extraordinary ideas. " (Wikipedia explains, "Croydon is a large town in South London, England.")

The arresting photographs are taken by Andrew Smith. Mr. Smith's Flickr account explains, "I live in Croydon and enjoy photographing the events going on in and on round London. Being of Scottish origin I do particularly enjoy those which are free and many of them are."

I used to read The Guardian a lot when I was travelling long distances to work. it is a very respected Newspaper over here, to say it is a national "middle-class" newspaper it manages to keep its articles accessable as well as interesting. The Guardian also did an obituary for Robert Anton Wilson: www.guardian.co.uk/news/2007/jan/18/guardianobituaries.usa

The Sub-heading goes like this:

"He turned Playboy readers' conspiracy theories into drug-assisted cult fiction"
