Grant Barrett advises:

"Remember, the Metro Diary never runs stories about ... why, although
Guiliani may be out of hand, you agree with his policy on food vendors
because sometimes those over-cooked pretzels just *stink.*"

Recently my wife and a friend, both native New Yorkers, were reminiscing
about how the Sabrett hot dog vendors always had very dirty brown gloves
with half-fingers, but the dog was good on a cold day anyhow. This
brought to mind dwds. At one time there were several initials applied
to hot dogs. I can only recall "dwd" for "dirty water dog." Does
anybody have any others?
