Dan, I loved Joe's article. Thanks! Except I did write all of Journey Home on a typewriter – and then when I scanned it into a laptop in 1994 it got so scrambled I mean horribly so - one page just had a giant "s" on it – I had to re-write the whole thing. I had the manuscript so that saved my butt – but it was an opportunity to edit especially the front half of the book since I started it in 1980 when I was 20 - it showed! The back half of the book scanned better because I moved from my brothers ribbon typewriter he took to college with him in 1967 to a swintec electric typewriter bought in the mid 80’s. It had a small memory chip in it for punching out form letters, fancy man! All in all anyone who uses a typewriter is out of their loving mind! Thanks for the laugh!

If the picture a typewriter to represent is must one already something Fantasie have. But which target must an old model 1940 ago be safe, or?

America is on dope. It's time to start complaining about the drug companies the way we complain about the oil companies. http://my-sick.blogspot.com/2006/08/take-pill.html

"?" Dan asked us to start something in the comments section. Is that so hard to fathom?
