Great one Don! I gotta say that those newspaper days were some of the best. Nothing like newspeople. I even married one! My wife spills more words in a week at her daily than I've written in a lifetime I think. Sadly not the business it once was though.

It was a BIG decision to leave it behind and come back to the Midwest, but I had no desire to keep all those overhead balls in the air. Fortunately I have never regretted the choice! Just paying your studio space must have been a monthy stress! I remember the prices were going through the roof in those days in the photo district. We moved from 23rd at that time down to 1st between 10th and 11th. Photographers were going to Little Italy, the alphabets and Brooklyn in numbers as I remember. It was a great time in New York though. I remember anticipating all the new Haring drawings in the Subways each morning, before I even knew who he was. I could go on... the place was so alive. I have grand memories of those times. What a place.
