summer, having a lot of time on my hands, I discovered unexpected treasures lurking in
the local public library. Among the nuggets I unearthed in those musty stacks was a book
by humorist Robert Benchley. To this day I remember one of his quips. He wrote, “There
are two kinds of people in this world; those who divide the world into two kinds of people
