I have passed the half-way point in my letter writing to Congress. So much effort goes into division that I thought a “little effort” toward understanding and unity would was worth my time.
Dr. King used words well and to great effect. Today words are picked apart and little leeway is given to intent and words used. We understand that a word has many meanings… and how a word is said and in what context; shifts its meaning as well. It almost makes me afraid to say anything, because I will not be understood. But then I recall… to be understood you must first speak or be forever misunderstood.
Kentucky Typer had a new old stock (1984) FACIT 1740 for sale. I was looking for a typewriter to do the bulk of my letters to Congress on and the FACIT fit the bill. (The paperwork showed it was tested January 8, 1984 so I use that date).
