Would you like to make a donation...

Recently in an attempt to pump more tax money into the state I live, I was in the drug store to buy cigarettes. As I was about to pay for my "famous American cigarettes" the clerk asked me if I would like to donate $1.00 to the American Heart Foundation. As the words came out of her mouth I could sense discomfort in this poor clerk. She obviously could see the irony in her question. I declined and almost said, "No, I'll be giving at the office... the office of my cardiologist someday."

Just another example of life being just as strange as fantasy. I was then off with my "famous American cigarettes" to "wherever particular people congregate."
