I depend a lot on WIDOWS.

Because widows and widowers, no matter what their weight (and today's hot news is that where BMI is concerned, Goldilocks erred just a bit http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2007-11/jaaj-sea110107.php... slightly heavier than we've been advised is actually best) are failing to die off in hordes, or because JLS is single-handedly causing a rise in demand, the cheapest Loeb I can find on the web is at Powell's, where Aristotle goes for a mere $9.95. Since today is once again not Adam Smith's birthday--born in Kircaldy some time close to June 5, 1723--and since everyone, particularly the Chinese, is in favor of competition, I'm proposing a competition to find JLS the widow's prize, the cheapest Loeb in the Western World, or maybe the whole world, the winner to be announced a year from today on the steps of Mutton College's Classic Audis Club.
