WOSTER: The science of playing dolls
I don't know how to "play dolls.'' Back in my younger days, I could play basketball and a little vacant-lot baseball. Even though I've grown older and don't participate in those sports, I still know how to play them. If the body were willing, the mind remains capable. What I'm...
