Nostalgia



Behind the counter at the Blissville Deli hang rolls of lotto cards in brash, electric colors. Oh, the promises they offer!

Once phone cards hung in their place. Some offered special deals for calling West Africa, some China. While others, the array of South American countries. Just buy a card, scratch off the randomly produced number on the back and get hours of conversation from home, the fine print said.

And if that weren't enough, now there's a machine that can produce a magic number for wherever a person could yearn for.
