> For all of you wondering why Keith got that coveted Senior Editor position (he'll be chair of the linguistics department of the University of South Arizona, any decade now)—it's because he sends me about a hundred good ideas for SpecGram a year, and usually works on 5 or 10 of them the same year. Every once in a while, I go back through the list of things I haven't gotten to and see what looks promising.
