The only butcher I’ve ever known has died. Sam the Butcher from the Brady Bunch passed away last week. You remember the boyfriend of Alice? Does anyone here know a butcher or have a butcher? (In fact, does anyone have a maid like Alice?) There are some girls at the Deli who slice the lunch meat and I guess there are some men who hand you some beef from the other side of the counter. I select it from the window or get it prepackaged (gasp!). I guess that someone had to cut it that way since I doubt it came from the cow all sliced and diced. Really though, I don’t know anyone at all who is a butcher. If I don’t know and butcher and you don’t know a butcher, are there not any more butchers? Do machines now cut the beef exactly perfect to get that cut that people insist on having?
