RRY I STIRRED IT by Bill aughan

I have been, for eighteen years, a paragrapher,"" says Kansas City Star humor columnist Bill Vaughan, and the conclusion may be drawn that such an output of paragraphs should be a sufficiency for a book. Possibly so, if one of intermittent interest is acceptable. The author peregrinates through the domestic waters of family life, the office round; peruses the political scene and the niceties of corporate diversification (as exemplified by the tomato sauce branch man of the Gourmet Foods Division of the Intime Watch Co.); ponders the problems of the persona and the need to be a whole man. He surveys the innards of the icebox, bemoans being secretaryless, is burdened by the insistence of banks on being friendly. His concerns are those of everyman, and so, for the most part, are his conclusions.
