Note: This early Grounds for Insanity column was written on the eve of 2009. Then, children drained hot-water tanks, paralysis struck two males in front of the washing machine and a mother occasionally, uh, took flight. Now, on the eve of 2015, those first two things still happen. Okay, so once in awhile, the last […]
