Tonight's cover illustration is: A mysterious advertisement for accordion-shaped security windows? Or something more sinister? "broker-security-systems..." Perhaps an attempt to profit off of people's fears of "crime" despite sinking crime rates? Fear costs, and profits others. But what's up with the accordion windows?
