CASTLES OUT OF CANS

I was in a store browsing
through the magazine racks last
week. I had to find a copy of The
Economist and get some economic
data from a large table in the back
for my Economics 402 class.
When I came upon the magazine
I found that it cost $6. I also found-
that the information I needed was
on one page but far too detailed to
copy down.
As one girl manned the coun-
ter several aisles away, I carefully
looked around to see who else was
in the area. I found only one man ;
he had his back to me.
So I ripped the page out, taking
about a minute to do so. The slower
I went, the quieter my ripping was.
After my horrible deed was done, I
looked up and found the man now
turned around facing me.
I could see now that he was
clearly homeless and was stuffing
the pockets of his massive coat with
candy, donuts and soft drinks. He
looked up at me and smiled with a
