ONE NIGHT during the war “the big one,” naturally Mort Walker was getting coldcocked into unconsciousness by a fellow soldier’s haymaker. Sometime later, to his relief, he was riding “on a big cruise ship with a bunch of nurses,” en route to Italy.

CORNISH: We begin today’s All Tech with news that Yahoo! is ending telecommuting for its employees. The company sent out an internal memo last week, which found its way to the tech news website All Things D.
