Back when Megalopolis always cost 96, Jim Fagen wrote us our first letter. We re-present it here along with our reply from issue #2.


December 16th, 1994

Editor, Mayo Mecca Conglomerate;

I presently see three things in your magazine:
   Arrogance - and
perhaps your would be willing to editorialize in your next issue your defense of the above literation.

Enclosed is my 96 cents for your next issue.

Jim Fagen
a citizen of the common populace

copy: the daily grind


Two of us are angry, none of us is affluent, and five of us are arrogant.
