Foreman has described himself as a "closet religious writer," and many of the stage sets he designs contain symbols from Jewish mysticism, which serve as talismans of his faith and of what that faith has generated in him: a spirit of inquiry, skepticism, and hope.
Part of what makes Foreman's characters feel like apparitions-figures who, in the midst of a hideous, cluttered landscape, seem to take in nothing at all-is their lack of response to the glare.
But history, Foreman implies, is what we're done with; now we must make our way, through the blinding lights of CNN and other forms of propaganda, into an unbrave new world.

Examples of the new traffic light signals can be seen at Magnolia siding north of St. Augustine and Wilton Manors at the north end of Fort Lauderdale's dual-track.
An old single-headed signal stands along single-track at St. Lucie holdout north of Fort Pierce; it was used to hold out trains when the yard was unable to accept them right away or a yard job needed extra room to swing out onto the mainline; it does not control a switch.
The beauty part of intermediate signals is that they typically show that a train is lined up long before the home signals show an indication, so you can know that a train is coming.

The circuits from RC Signals at Norman Wells and Yellowknife to the DEW Line control stations at Cape parry and Cambridge Bay were hand-keyed and unable to handle this additional weather information, the increased air movement traffic and the tremendous volume of construction traffic properly.

RC Signals personnel at these stations were instructed in the operation and routine maintenance of this equipment and undertook its operation for the next year.
