    The theatre looks really wonderful. Too bad there are very few if any family movies any longer. Funny, just last week my wife commented on there being no G rated movies.

    I really like that Remington. Very sharp looking.

    That's a heck of a sexy noiseless. And what a beautiful theater!

    Sunday Times paper version is cool, I used to subscribe to that. Now a friend of mine passes on all the Arts and Movie pages of his NYTimes subscription to me. Paper recycling.

    Mention of identifying insurgency secret agents, I believe my very limited forensic document examination skills have led me to identifying the agent who took the fortress (January 25 post). Shall we exchange notes on this through email, or is that too risky? Wouldn't want to leave one of your agents exposed. He/she is doing such a wonderful job, after all.

    That's a great idea for Sunday morning habits!

    We have a theater like that which is a lot of fun to go to here in Blacksburg. It still looks and feels all 1930s inside (until you hear the sound which thank goodness they updated recently). I think the story about the X-rated blunder is hysterical even though it is unfortunate.

    Fond Memories. I bought an Oliver #5 not far from the Grand Lake Theater, when I was a student at UC Berkeley. Had to lug it to a bus stop, then another 4 blocks at the end of the bus route! When I was kid, we went to a doctor who shared a building with a common waiting room. Both had a nurse/receptionist, but one had a noiseless Remington. When she typed up an index card, it was "da, da, da, da." The other nurse had a standard Underwood #5, and it was "CLACK, CLACK, CLACK." The difference in sound always intrigued me.

    Don't underestimate that Noiseless 10, Richard. It'll grow on you. I love writing with my 1938 version — even if it ain't deluxe.

    And, as a writer, though not for The Times, thanks for reading the Sunday paper on PAPER.

    Did that Cinderella movie include porny musical accompaniment on The Mighty Wurlitzer?

    Someone, please send Richard some postcards from the Paramount and Fox so you can see how gorgeous these Oakland landmarks are. (In the meantime, GIS is your friend.)

    Viva snail mail!

    Newspapers! Funny how a daily lifelong habit like reading the paper is suddenly gone when the technical winds shift direction. Maybe I should do the Sunday paper thing myself — thanks for the idea!
