Some things we?d like to un-invent


I enjoy reading Marilyn vos Savant’s weekly writings in the Sunday Parade Magazine insert in the Wichita Eagle. She always offers something challenging to think about, though I seldom have a clue on her mind-bending puzzles.

This past week, she headed a different direction, however, and reported on more than 2,000 responses readers had sent in after she asked what items they would most like to “un-invent.”
