From "The Answer Guys," Middlesex News, 10/31/93.
The conversation turned, as it so often does in the newsroom, to food. There was Jim eating a sandwich he'd just bought from Sub-Way. Jim, a native Pennsylvanian, casually dropped that where he came from, what he was eating was a hoagie. Other reporters jumped in, in the sort of conversation everybody has surely had at one time or another: how many different names are there for this kind of sandwich? And we quickly exhausted all the possibilities: grinder, sub, hero and, of course, hoagie.
