Commentator Andrei Codrescu visits the headquarters of the Johnson Company in Racine, Wis., and learns about the work the architect Frank Lloyd Wright did for the firm. Wright, Codrescu says, got lost in his own visions. Example: a curved chair that is uncomfortable to sit in, but looks great. Wright kept his money in a solidly square brick building in downtown Milwaukee.
