June 14, 1983 - Art Buchwald sent me a letter saying he enjoyed my piece very much and I should send it to Personal Computing, Popular Computing, Info World and Byte for publication. I sent the article to Art Buchwald because after I had written it, I read it and it sounded like something he would have written. So I wanted to clear it with him first. Looking back at my records, it turns out I didn't take his advice because I was in banking, and generic publications didn't interest me. Independent Banker magazine published it under the title, "Are Computers Really Becoming Friendlier?" I've got three "works of art" hanging on my office walls - George Washington, a 1958 photo of a missile in front of my office building at SAC Hq. and Art Buchwald's letter. Sometimes I think I can hear Art Buchwald's letter speaking to me in that unique voice.
