from Guy Debord

To Morgan Sportes
27 January 1989
Dear Morgan:

The other evening,[1] I thought you regarded those weirdos with amusement and almost a kind of benevolence. It was me, rather, who needed -- as is too often the case -- to bridle the audacities of my strange "fanatics." Because these people have read me, then recognized me on the basis of a single photo[2] that I have let circulate so as to refute a more displeasing accusation,[3] they believe they have the right to pose questions to me. Soon after, they want to make me aware of their critiques and directives!

Since you will return on 3 February, let us say -- if this suits you -- Tuesday the 7th, at my place, 7:30 pm as always.
