The only other hit refers to a literal sandwich. The only place that I've

"sandwich," in a paperback that I was browsing through, in a Los Angeles
dirty-book store, ca. 1965.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
