    I remembering hearing one of your NPR audio comments about “the disease of convenience”, is there a copy available somewhere?

    Thanks-

    Looking for a story about two children who huddle together during the day to stay warm while their mom is at work – they refer to their habit as “the best sandwich”. Was told that it had been read on NPR by Daniel Pinkwater. Sound familiar? Need title and author.
