A thousand future histories, meticulously logged and gift wrapped for posterity.
My eyes rolled like minnows in a mudslide as I scanned the sprawling mass of
information packing his studio apartment; twelve by twenty- five feet of living
space, plus kitchenette and bath. Every square inch of which was crammed with
tier upon tier, shelf upon shelf of books, periodicals, videocassettes, laserdiscs,
photo albums, notebooks, and manuscripts. There was some stereo equipment

Though he "hung out" for a thousand verdicts and kept late watches on a
thousand death-beds, he would ever be the same. The mere presence of the
incalculable works upon his brain; the consciousness of an approaching "flash'-'
sets up a painful tingle of dread. He paces the room slowly, angry with himself.
Surely, he has faced this sort of responsibility often enough. By now he should be
able to apply the fatalism of the profession ; he should be hardened, and should
say "I don't ...

But every time he writes a big story, all his relatives - of which he has thousands,
scattered throughout London - ring up to discuss the story, and to congratulate
him at great length. He has a hard time, poor lamb." "It is true!" shouted Sidney,
leaping to his feet. "But all is not lost. The unconquerable will and spirit of
revenge, immortal hate and what not else is not to be overthrown - Milton, you
know; I was weaned on it. Had a literary father," he added in a normal voice,

Writing thousands upon thousands of words, however, will not teach one to write
well if, in the writing process, one persists in repeating the same old errors. Any
newspaper copy-desk editor can give you a list of errors he has cut a thousand
times from news copy and knows he will keep right on cutting no matter how

times out of 10 he will wear it to a stub correcting identical errors in phrase and
sentence ...

Thousand. Flowers. ournalism is in crisis, and as the dean ofajournalism school, I
'm often asked what its future will be. Yes, I too get depressed when I see what's
happening to mainstream media—all those layoffs, steep revenue declines, and
bankruptcies. In losing so much financial muscle, the traditional news industry
can no longer lift as much journalistic weight as it once did. Since 2006, US.
newspapers have cut their news staffs by more than 25 percent? In Baltimore, to

This new map of the world is not defined by lines of latitude and longitude - the
minute, myriad points of intersection in this new world are the television cameras,
the satellite dishes, the cellphones, the laptop computers that are the tools of our
information age. These machines are the gateways into the matrix. They are the
doors leading into the electronic corridors where the world looks in at itself at a
thousand different points and out again towards a thousand more. It is a moving,

many pictures hanging suspended — It is not a fixed house, It is round — it is but
a few inches from one side of it to the other side, But behold! it has room enough

In a radio poll in Johannesburg, 1 3 000 callers voted that Small should keep his
place while a thousand went the other way. A stranger forum of support for Small

market. The market has a five-o'clock deadline. The bluelines arrived past the
deadline and everyone was gone. There were deadlines between the lines. I can
read between the lines because I've been up against a thousand deadlines and
made it in the nick of time with nary a crease more in my lined forehead. Looking
