A million for just 33? That's $33 thousand each. Sounds like Gvt. Fin.
mumbo-jumbo to me. Those machines couldn'tve cost $10K retail.

As aside. The business machine repair (read: typewriters) shop 10
miles from my house just closed. Wouldn't be surprised if it's the last
in the county. The New York times published a report on a similar,
prominent closing in NYC a couple of years ago. If there's one near
you don't expect it to last long.
