Tracey and all interested parties:

"i *love* the ezra shapiro quotes you've been using in your signature box. who
is he? where can i get his writing?" (says Tracey)

My recent quotes have been from a great little piece called "The Devil's
Dictionary" (a la Ambrose Bierce) that was originally printed in MacWEEK
Graphic Arts, 25 October 1988. The attribution on the bottom of the page
says they're from a forthcoming book -- presumably it's out now.

There. Now you know as much as I do (I pulled the photocopy of this
exceprt from a co-worker's "funny file").

The rest of it is as good -- you'll be seeing more!
