UNEQUIVICAL STAGING

UNEQUIVICAL STAGING Within a month of the date I was born, the Nobel Prize for Physics went to Born and Bothe – it seems the committee was torn as to whose breakthrough they would thus adorn.

MONKEYS SHINED

MONKEYS SHINED          The keyboard monkeys, ad infinitum, may randomly type out a Shakespeare play, but publishing monkeys may well spite ‘em, printing only the pap that sells today.          The chance of brilliance, vanishingly small, is filtered through some monkey business sense and may never make the bookshelves at all — some monkeys see […]
