Yes. . . I ran a newspaper in a state hospital with patients and staff as my reporters. One of my reporters was a lobotomized former writer for the New Yorker. An amazingly funny man and good writer. Especially all things considered.

I re-read Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH last week. Loved it all over again. So pleased to have my own copy.

I like the parts that relate to making a book. I used to make handmade books. Should get back to that one of these days.
