Editors: Up close and personal for the first time

New York City, 1972, 810 Seventh Ave. between 52nd and 53rd, taking the elevator up to my office.

Two guys (whose conversation suggested they were editors) were discussing some esoteric aspect of the use of a particular word.

I thought to myself, "These are the people who make a living dealing with this sort of thing."

Little did I know.
