   I must not have posted this (see attached).
   From VARIETY, 26 September 1928, pg. 1, col. 1:

_Rice and Tea Chain for Apple_
_Acts in Yellow Peril Floor Shows_
   A new outlet for vaude layoffs that beats the so-called coffee and cake circuit for low salaries is a chain of chink restaurants in New York, Brooklyn and Long Island, labeled the rice and tea circuit.

WILLIAM SAFIRE WATCH (continued)

   In last week's column, Safire mentioned OED.  In this week's column, he mentions DARE and Merriam-Webster.  He TAKES their work for free.  I GIVE my work to them for free.
   Correcting what is attached to my name is not a "favor" to me.  But I guess I don't deserve anything.
   Happy holidays.
