For others, it is so synonymous with ordinariness that a “knob” is a pejorative word for being dull or stupid.



The Vancouver Sun reports the doorknob is heading into a setting sun. Its future has been date-marked, legislated out of existence in all future construction, a tip to society’s quest for universal design and the easier-to-use lever handle.
