The July 14, 2013 issue of the Boston Globe Magazine printed this letter:
DRIVEN TO DISTRACTION
Just a quick note to tell Jack Cheng (Connections
, June 23) that he wrenched my attention away from the crossword with his first paragraph: “A 70-year-old man is blocking the base path . . . . As he stumbles, I race toward second base.” It was a good wrench, as wrenches go. Loved the images, the sense of Wiffle camaraderie, teaching by showing the kids about proper rule bending — the whole piece, actually. Thanks.
