When I was in junior high (what they called it back then), one year we had to sell at least one magazine to get an “A” in phys ed. I was a lousy salesperson, and it wound up with my parents buying the absolutely cheapest magazine on the list. It was Pathfinder, “second largest news magazine in 1950s.” After the subscription ran out, the magazine kept sending us issues, month after month, hoping that we’d renew. I had my “A” in p. e., and we didn’t renew.
