Thanks for the SNIP*, arnold! ;-)

*Back in '50's Saint Louis, a local teen mag had a section called,
"See Name In Print." You simply mailed in your name and that of your
high school and you got a SNIP to show to all of your friends. As well
as a motive for buying the mag, of course.

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.
