"A Cigarette for 75 Cents . . ." by Joseph Goldstein - NYTimes.com

They have a lot of things in the suburbs that they don't have in the city. Acorns. Golden Retrievers. Little League coaches that would literally rather rip your throat out with their bare hands than let someone other than their roly-poly son play second base.

But I'll tell you what they don't have out there. Loosies. I had never even sniffed the term until the Chappelle's Show sketch about the game show that tests your hood IQ. Now I know that a loosie is a cigarette you can buy all by its lonesome. It's not legal. The Times investigates.
