Comment: Often when I read these RACKET SQUAD comics, I think of Astrid Greene, a lady who flew around the world without having to pay for it by posing as a stewardess. She was so good at the job, the passengers wrote letters to the airline praising her helpfulness, and the office that received the letters didn't have a file on her - that was what did her in. Although she probably didn't do it for money, Astrid was still guilty of fraud. Incidentally, there are actually TWO Jokers in a deck of playing cards, the other being called the Extra Joker. The writer of the "Cold Deck" story forgot that when he had the cheaters expose themselves.
