True story: One of the several meetings I scheduled with local editors took place in the big city of Bangor, over coffee at an awesome local bakery (Bagel Central). Funny thing is I neglected to get any idea beforehand what this editor actually looked like. So on an offhand chance I did a quick Google Image search, and was rewarded with many many mug shots of criminals. See, this editor worked a police beat and filed a lot of blotter reports, which were in turn posted on-line which triggered these rather disconcerting search results. Made for a great opening line at any rate. Me, I'm always easy to pick out, as it's a dead, cliched giveaway to stroke a goatee over a sketchbook. Poseur.
