Linguist, lexicographer, writer, editor, broadcaster

Nine countries, seven languages and an infinite number of near-nude women

“I go into my competitors’ offices and there are editors who have offices larger than my entire editorial bullpens. It’s ridiculous! These people are ridiculous! It’s absolutely insane! What do they think they’re doing? Magazines are ephemera. They’re ephemera. They’re not important in people’s lives. They’re nice. They’re amusing. The way these magazine editors go on, you’d think they were important or something. It’s ridiculous! People read magazines for a bit of entertainment and a small amount of information. Who the bloody hell do they think they are, carrying on? The Magazine Publishers of America, sitting around giving each other prizes! What pathetic, pathetic little asses!”
