They had such a great sound, didn't they? Pre-Selectric days, I had to
justify text using a regular typewriter. Now that's a challenge! It often
meant rewriting to use fewers Ws and more Ls, or vice versa, to make things
come out right. Counting keystrokes. Ugh. I see you all shaking your heads
at how nuts that was. I was getting paid by the hour, and it was all
pensionable time. <g>

Sometimes I miss the days when I did my writing on an IBM
Selectric. I found that retyping each paragraph gave me
a crisper style, as my lazy fingers sought out ways to
reduce the number of keystrokes needed.
