Philips made a pretty solid marketing push a little while back on a pod coffee maker they call "Senseo". One of the other groups here at the lab have one in our break room that they use. It seems to work pretty well, but it's the only one I've seen outside of a store. Don't know if they've sold many over here or not. I've not had any Senseo coffee so I can't comment on the qulity of the pods.
Letterman asked Zevon if his condition had taught him anything about life and death. ''How much you're supposed to enjoy every sandwich,'' Zevon answered. (From a 2003 NYTimes article on Zevon by Jon Pareles.)
