It was Goebbels...

In the first days after 9/11, Nathan Lyons, one of our most interesting
photographers (though not mainly known as photographer), went around NYC
with a camera photographing artifacts, signs, graffiti, etc., as he does.
They were published in a book, I forget the name of (which was gone from
the used book store when I went back to get it). One of them was that
citation. Tho I've seen it elsewhere, too -- and of course we see it in
practice now before our very eyes... (NY Times front page headline today:
"White House Trumpets Programs It Tried to Cut.")

Lyons has a couple of other very intense little books. One is titled
"Notations in Passing," the other -- oh darn, something about the Titanic,
I believe.
