This is a quote from a story on the Fox News website: "An SM-3 fired from the USS Paul Hamilton directly hit the first target missile." The first thought in my narrow mind was, "How could a typewriter stop a missile?" Ah, the mind of a typewriter collector! NaNoWriMo update:3980 and nowhere near what I had planned. Love this one: " A recent survey of the top 1,000 living English-language authors finds that more than 80 percent own manual typewriters averaging 43 years in age and three broken functions, with a per-unit resale value of $4.75 and slipping. Yet in a questionnaire about their response if brigands should invade their homes and demand either their beat-up old manual typewriters or their spouses on pain of death, a whopping 96 percent wrote 'Spouse.'"
