  • "(P)olice at the University of California at Santa Barbara began receiving reports from around campus of a particularly academic form of graffiti--red spray-painted allusions to . . . Thomas Pynchon, whose 1966 novel The Crying of Lot 49 is (in typical fashion) a sprawling admixture of paranoia, counterculture and obscure literary references. . . . The "muted post horn" appears in about a third of the 15 to 20 occurrences of graffiti documented by nine police reports received so far. . . . (The other two-thirds apparently delved into less literary territory through the depiction of male body parts, the F-word and references to the university and the police. For that reason, Bowman said, he doesn’t think the crime is necessarily or completely related to the book.)
