As a small child I remember watching a linotype operator keying his machine and fascinated by his callused hands handling the hot lead slugs.
How to Deal With Negative Press
How does George R. R. Martin do his actual writing?
Using a separate computer for writing is brilliant. I wouldn’t go back to Wordstar – I’d use Wordperfect 5.0 – the best word processing program I’ve seen.
I like his rant against auto-correct – “If I had wanted a capital, I’d have typed a capital.”
I can’t argue with King Ghidorah at #1, but I would have ranked Mothra higher.
The only thing better than biking to work is biking to somewhere other than work.
I have no sympathy for Mesquite in this deal. I lived there, years ago, when the DART vote went down. Mesquite voted no. The reason I heard was, “If we get a train and a bus system, poor people will move here.” Wrong. Young professionals that work downtown and are looking for affordable housing will live there and take the train to work. And when the young profesionals move to other suburbs (with dense, transit-oriented development) what do you have left?
There are plenty of bad spots in Dallas. Here’s one that I particularly abhor. It would be a very useful route to get from Downtown/Cedars to the Santa Fe Trestle Trail… if it wasn’t a death trap. It looks like there are sidewalks and stairs too – don’t be fooled, they go nowhere… fast.
