How do I make a Little Schemer like layout in latex?

I want to make a two-column table that spans the entire page and is laid out something like this:

"This should get you a good chunk of what you want:

\begin{tabular*}{\textwidth}{ l l }
\hline
The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog & Another example of text \\
\hline
The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog & Another example of text \\
\end{tabular*}

Some explanation:

The tabular* environment lets you set a lot of layout options that the simpler tabular environment doesn't, such as widths.
The first argument to tabular*, \textwidth, tells LaTeX to use the entire width of the page.
The second argument, l l, is just like that of tabular.
The \hline command inserts a horizontal line."
