He’ll finish this column when he gets a round tuit

“When are you going to rip the old carpet out of this room?” my wife demanded. “We brought the new flooring home more than a year ago.” I glanced around the little space I call my home office. Sure, the carpet had a few snags and stains. And a gouged hole or two. But it still did what ...

PK dreams of sleep minus melting watches

You know how, after you’ve had a sleepless night, the next day is like, um, a living version of Salvador Dahli’s “The Persistence of Memory”? You’ll recall his (arguably) most famous painting in which there are a bunch of melting stopwatches. And they’re on the beach. Oh, and one ...
