Ray added a ladder to the drawing (by somone else of a statue in Tompkins Square Park honoring Postmaster Samuel S. Cox that appeared in a 1960's era Correspondance School project) after he did his September 1984 "roof event" in which he carried a ladder back and forth on top of a parking garage. The pun (letter/ladder carrier) was only an inkling of the layers of meaning that Ray eeked out of any slice of life. Photo of Ray by Coco Gordon.
