I know some of you collect dictionaries for fun. Now I see somebody watching DVD’s about newspaper editing. Oughta be a way to charge that time to the boss, if nothing else.

    Of course I meant that in a “Like-Silcon-Valley-where-all-the-nerds-are-cool” way

    Where all nerds are cool? Perhaps I’ve found my Mecca, and it is Silicon Valley.
    But I don’t know if I could afford to even be a nerd there.

    “The gift for the editor who thinks he knows everything.”
    Oh, whoops, what I mean is: “The gift for the editor who has everything.”

    A special showing at my local club might be a good idea. I recall getting non-newspaper people to test me on the bells and whistles of a new layout system. It had the rest of the room in gales of laughter as because the questions were all phrased in our trade talk.
