BOOK DEALING AS A PROFESSION

[Everyone is going green these days.  St. Patrick's Day is
around the corner, but I'm thinking of save-the-earth green.
In the spirit of environmentalism, I'm recycling an article
from a previous E-Sylum issue.  Here's a gem from April 6,
2003. -Editor]

  Numismatic literature dealer John Burns had a table at the
  Baltimore coin show a few weeks ago.   Leaving the hall to
  meet John Kraljevich and fellow dealer Charles Davis, he
  was stopped by a panhandler who asked, "Can you spare
  something, sir?"   Well, John's not exactly the last of the big
  spenders, and sales at the show up to that point had been at
  best so-so.   So John said to the woman, "Why don't you
  get a job like everyone else?"

  "But I don't got no skills!" came her reply, and John blurted
  out, "I don't have any damn skills, either - why do you think
  I'm a BOOKDEALER!?"    Charlie nearly spewed his beer
  laughing when he heard the tale, but according to John, they
  both stopped suddenly, thinking, what are we laughing about?
