Book Report: 'Up North' loaded with history
I've always had a weakness for ongoing fictions that grow with the years. When I was a kid I liked "Gasoline Alley" because Skeezix grew up and his father got fat. Recently I've been watching reruns of the entire Walton's dramatic series. Normally, when a TV cast member died, the...

Essays illustrate Woll's gift to gab
I'm a great admirer of Garrison Keillor, but occasionally he can become maddeningly perverse. Years ago I attended a press conference for him in Las Vegas during which a Washington Post reporter asked Keillor how far Lake Wobegon was from Minneapolis. Characteristically, Keillor didn't...

Book Report: Finding the funny in very grave matters
Humorists can make hay of the least likely subjects. Like death. Remember W. C. Fields? He said he wanted the following inscription on his tombstone: "On the Whole I'd Rather Be in Philadelphia." And then there was "Pep" Simek of Medford, who recently passed on to the big pizza...
