The lime index

Some rely on the federal consumer price index. The number of limes that can be bought for a dollar is more relevant. The best rate ever was 20 limes for a dollar. This week has been one of the worst, ranging from one lime for something like 65 cents at Whole Foods to 8 limes for a dollar at Fiesta Mart. What is this economy coming to? J.C. (Taylor Farms in Lockhart) had the only peaches at the downtown farmers' market and was doing a land-office business.
