The magazine so nice that it was subscribed to twice

All was set aright in second, though, thanks to the trusty people at Fairchild Publications. For reasons that won't be discussed here, this is a periodicals-poor household. It takes a database to keep up with it all, and matters are not simplified by our practice of using variants on names in order to track the sale of name-and-address information to various mailing lists. Every once in a while there's a slip-up that results in a concurrent subscription. The subscription agent had a good, genuine midwestern accent of a certain sort, not easily duplicated. Obviously, there's no outsourcing going on here. The subs were combined and extended in no time at all.
