Escalator walkers and escalator standers are forever locked in struggle—they are like toilet paper over-the-roll installers and under-the-roll installers, or GIF pronouncers, or one-spacers and two-spacers, only brought head to head every day in the malls, airports, offices, train exits, and sundry moving staircases of the world.

print-edition icon Print edition | Asia Mar 7th 2019 FEW CREATURES can live comfortably on oil-palm plantations.
