A Buck In The Basket?

Maybe it's time for a raise

Take me out to the ball game but I won't expect you to buy me a hot dog, too. Those who participate in the highway robbery of buying refreshments at sports events pay something like $6.00 for the beers and $5.00 or more for the hot dog. (I can remember when one got a whole case of beer at that price.)

It's a harsh fact that inflation has us by the throat and is choking us to death. Those of us who are no longer kids feel pinched and distressed by the ongoing soaring prices.
