… old editors never die, they just revert to type
In the printing industry, pied type is letterpress type that has been tossed or spilled into … a jumble. It seemed the perfect name for a blog created by a retired editor whose jumble of topics emanates from a similarly jumbled mind. Politics, the environment, random musings, etc. — you never know what you’ll find here.
I worked in print publishing for thirty years, mostly in Oklahoma City where I grew up; the latter half of those years was spent as managing editor of a medical journal. And I’ve had a website of one kind or another since 1995.
I apologize in advance for any disordered posts you come across. There are more than 4,000 posts here, dating back to 2002. Both WordPress and I have made a lot of changes since then, and each one likely broke some preceding posts. I try to fix them when I find them, but it’s an endless, sometimes impossible task.
For the record, I now live in Thornton, Colo., 20 miles north of downtown Denver, and am a registered Unaffiliated (UNA) voter, grandmother of two, shy introvert, secular humanist, serious gamer, and mom to feline Rowdy and canine Charlie.
