About Pied Type
Reason, rant, and rumination
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, mostly, but I enjoy it. Hence my tagline: “Old editors never die, they just revert to type.”
Current events, politics, the environment, random musings, etc. 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.
I revise this page occasionally, so some of the comments below may refer to earlier content.
