Washington Post humor columnist Gene Weingarten answers the stunningly obvious follow-up to the age-old question all parents rhetorically ask their teenage children. Despite (or maybe because) he is just a humor columnist, Weingarten often hits the nail on the head. But today, he nailed only himself. Because he used the word asphyxia he can’t get off by pleading that he’s just a humor columnist. He might have actually done some research.
Golf columnist John Paul Newport writes in the Wall Street Journal’s Weekend Edition, “People love to complain about slowpokes, but golfers in a rush can be even more irritating.” Newport defends those who play at a “deliberate” pace against persistent complaints from “speed golfers” that they are slowing down play and making a round of gold take too long. Newport offers an amusing take on speed golfers who seem to be more interested in finishing than getting a good score, but he admits to having no solution for the problem:
“I’ll get back to you when I come up with a solution for how group A (slower in absolute time) and group B (faster) can happily occupy the same course.”
Neutral Source has the solution Mr. Newport is looking for.
