Dear LUGerís,

I just saw a T Rowe Price TV commercial that featured a woman riding in a
train holding a chrome M-X in her lap. It may have been an M3, but the
glimpse was too fleeting to be sure. With a chill I realized that this
attractive, pleased looking woman in her fifties could be the well-off
(annuities, donít you know) widow of a LUGger out on holiday enjoying her
freedom and what you once fancied was your camera. Beware Scotch tipplers.
Watch that diet. Shed those pounds. Renounce that stress. Donít let this
happy, wistful-looking woman be your spouse. Where is the rest of the
collection . . .

In alarm,

Joe Stephenson
