MONTVALE. NJ—In a crucial, 11th-hour decision for one of the tristate area's largest weekly bargain supplements, Pathmark circular editor in chief Daniel Mauzy boldly opted to run a $0.75-off discount on Snuggle fabric softener as this week's top coupon. "The fact is, every other circular in town is going to be running this coupon up top, and if we bury it on page eight, we're the ones who are going to look like idiots," Mauzy said in a hastily convened emergency staff meeting yesterday. "People want to see more Snuggle on the front page, and I think it's high time we gave the people what they want." As a reward for his quick thinking and impeccable journalistic instincts, Mauzy was given a small raise and a mail-in two-for-one rebate on Glade PlugIns.
