About Pied Type
Old editors never die, they just revert to type
Before retiring, yours truly worked in print publishing for thirty years, mostly in Oklahoma City where I grew up; half of those working years were spent as managing editor of a medical journal (nice gig for a doctor’s kid). And I’ve maintained an internet presence since 1995. These days I enjoy publishing this blog and writing about whatever is on my mind. Whistling in the wind, probably, but it’s satisfying.
Current events, politics, the environment, random musings, etc. For better or worse, you never know what you’ll find here. For the record, I now live in Thornton, Colo., just north of Denver, and am a registered Unaffiliated voter, grandmother of two, introvert, secular humanist, serious gamer, and willing servant to a dog and a cat.
“Pied type,” by the way, is letterpress or handset type that has been tossed or spilled into a jumbled mess. It seemed the perfect name for a blog created by an old editor whose jumble of topics emanates from a similarly jumbled mind.
