The Slice

Considering the “Simpsons” marathon

The idea of 12 days of 24/7 episodes is rather amazing.

It shows how expenditures of leisure time can add up.

If someone had read every print Slice column since August of 1992, I wonder how much of an investment of time that would have been.

I tried to do the math in the summer of 2002, but I knew it was impossible to be precise.

I mean, how do you account for variable reading speeds or, say, the subscriber who looks at the headline, sighs "Marmots...again" and then, to borrow a phrase, moves on.
