...a black stretch limo, the very emblem of power, cruised the streets, projecting pairs of images and words, e.g., "media corruption," "obscene consumerism," "mysterious status," against its windows so that they became the anonymous screens of authorless information. The messages were obviously inflected to underscore the juxtaposition of their carrier, the vehicle of literal power, the hired car with the implicit exercise of control.
