Summary:
DeFeo has taken a poster for the 3rd annual Los Angeles Film-makers Festival and collaged over it with scraps of brown paper on which she wrote her and Berman's addresses; a photo of a little girl (possibly DeFeo at a young age); and a torn piece of paper with a typewritten message. The message reads: The White Rose is a Fact painted somewhere on a slow curve between destinations. This is all I remember. This is all I know...; It is all I can say about the Universal Pastime for all giant fans who believe in the second coming of Casey Stengel.
