And Lo! A Ham Sandwich

You know I always like to tell you when the New York Times mentions Jerry Lewis. But today A.O. Scott makes the dumb statement that the French love Jerry Lewis. You know how I hate that dumb statement, which means nothing. But from A.O. Scott! Who should know better. It really smarts. Let's stay positive! There was an article about automats in the New York Times the other day, and it contained a phrase I really liked, taken from an early 20th-century newspaper account: "and lo! a ham sandwich or a peach dumpling is his for the taking."
