Hi BV,

Talk about great minds! I read this article in the NYT, wrote a blog post about it last night which went up this morning and I, too, quoted POGO!!

After reading your post, I went back to the original article to see if I took the POGO quote from the article, but it's not there.

There we are, thinking alike.

Happy New Year.

Pogo was one of my favorite comic strips as a youngster. My father even had some first editions which he loaned to one of his students and never saw again. Sigh. Another Pogo quotation which has relevance to the publishing industry right now and its combination of terror or optimism (depending upon who you ask) is: "We are confronted with insurmountable opportunities."
