About Pied Type

Old editors never die, we 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 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 years were spent as managing editor of a medical journal. And I’ve had a website of one kind or another since 1995. It scratches my creative itch 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 (UNA) voter, grandmother of two, shy introvert, loner, secular humanist, serious gamer, and willing servant to a cat named Rowdy and a dog named Charlie.

(My apologies for any disordered posts you find. When I change themes/templates it can disarrange some of the 3,800 or so posts that predated the change. The last change was in March 2022 and I’m still trying to get everything fixed!)
