A Secret Message in Chocolate

Valentine's is the biggest sales day of the year for chocolate. I'm standing with my wife at a register when I see Godiva chocolates for sale. Suddenly it occurs to me one reason why women might feel the allure of chocolate: the subliminal message of Godiva? Go diva. So much more sophisticated than "Yugo girl."

I used to live in a bad part of town in Dallas. One time when I was walking to the grocery store a car full of gang members drove slowly past. They were doing their best to look tough- heads bobbing, caps on crooked, lower lips protruding- but they were in a Yugo.

It was very hard to take them seriously.
