Over the weekend, a group of former RED staff members got together to honor our friend and colleague Craig Froehlich who passed away last month. We sat around eating pastry puffs, drinking beer/wine and reading some of Craig's best satirical columns. My friend Jeremy had a few of Craig's possessions on hand, including a box of Chick Tracts. These are new to me. Apparently when Craig was growing up in Detroit, evangelical Christians passed out "informative" propaganda designed to save souls (particularly dog-collared teens). The content runneth over with hyperbolic scare tactics and general bigotry designed to "reverse psychologize" recipients into "saving" their souls. Or driving into oncoming trains (see below).
