Fair enough.  I can remember going for a tour through our newspaper
building when they still worked that way.  We were led through the whole
production process, in order.

Somewhere I still have my name on a metal block - one of the linotypers
bashed out all our names for us, and I kept mine.  I wish I could find
it, I could use it for neatly naming my plastic possessions with a bit
of applied heat.  ;-)
