Is flat good or bad? When Thomas Friedman stated "the world is flat", he redefined the arcane notion of a non-spherical world and changed it to mean a level playing field, thus giving it a positive spin. When it comes to marathon running, Greek bread and New York living, flat is good. Soda, tires and singing, not so much (the latter can get you a scathing rebuke from Simon at American Idol). When you think about it, the word flat is neutral, occasionally taking sides based on the context and speaker's intent.
Donuts, on the other hand are always good, especially on a Friday morning. This Friday morning, Kim Carroll treats us to an unimpeachable selection of Krispy Kreme donuts. So, don't get caught flat-footed; make that move to flatten the competition. The energy you need is waiting to be released, conveniently packaged in the form of a humble donut.
