New Frozen Grin Feature: Uncommon Wisdom

(Click image to enlarge)

The World is full of possibility and chance, the road not taken, the branch that doesn't break. The great and small appear and disappear with unpredictable stories and unexpected consequences. We fill in the gaps that they leave behind with our imagination, and render the picture as whole as we can. But our imagination can go another step, and create possibility that would otherwise not exist.

With that in mind, Frozen Grin presents "Uncommon Wisdom" a new series of glimpses of the lives and thought of interesting and provocative figures previously overlooked merely because they did not exist. Until now.


  1. Pete, your intro to this cool new feature reminds me of Tom Stoppard (high praise from me):

    We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.

    Tom Stoppard,
    Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

  2. Thanks Howard. I recall you saying that when you sat down to write a column, you didn't know for sure what you thought until you finished. That was definitely the case here.



  3. andas at the National Zoo in D.C. were reluctant to mate:

    "Ling-Ling and Hsing-Hsing haven't done a thing-thing."

  4. perhaps Ling-Ling needs some bling-bling...
