About Pied Type
… a little mixed up
“Pied” type is letterpress 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. Current events, politics, the environment, random musings, etc. For better or worse, you never know what you’ll find here.
Before retiring, I 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 of one kind or another since 1995. These days I enjoy publishing this blog and writing about whatever is on my mind. Just whistling in the wind, probably, but it’s satisfying and keeps me out of trouble.
For the record, I now live in Thornton, Colo., 20 miles north of downtown Denver, and am a registered Unaffiliated voter, grandmother of two, introvert, atheist, serious gamer, and servant to a cat named Rowdy.
