...today I saw one of those amusement machines where you guide a claw mechanism around to pick up toys that it probably won't be able to lift. Y'know, the kind really young children play for 25 cents a try. On the top of the toy pile in this machine was a stuffed bear, purple, with a gleeful smile and a big nose. Attached to this bear's hand was a plastic newspaper with a tiny reprint of the Los Angeles Times front page from the day Kennedy was assassinated. --ryan.
