OVERHEARD STREETCAR CONVERSATION

-The Globe's stopped running Rick Salutin's columns.
-It's about time. The guy's been dead 25 years.
-What? He's been an insightful lef-
-Yes, but he's very dead. He died in '86.
-He's been being published weekly!
-They're all old columns. Reprints. Ever noticed he never mentioned the collapse of communist Russia?
-I thought that was just style.
-No. Evidence is the columns still went on like communism didnít lead to brutality and famine.
-I noticed that.
-Like he was still masturbating to pictures of Ulrike Meinhof.
-You don't say.
-Otherwise: why'd he never evolve?
-Right.
-My stop.
