Letters From the Editor

Overheard Conversation

While waiting for friends to pay for their orders in a deli, I overheard the following delivery order, as read by the cashier:

One Corona

One pack of Parliament cigarettes

One ham sandwich

One quick-pick lotto ticket

One Penthouse magazine
The elements of life, contained in a lunch.
