EDITOR'S notebookJune 2003
I've also enjoyed mentoring editorial associates over the years, watching them become chief editors of sister magazines within our company or moving on to other outside opportunities. Perhaps one's gift to the human race can best be measured, not based on personal accomplishments, but by the positive impact made on others.
But, most rewarding, has been the chance to get to know so many industry individuals; it's the people who truly make the graphic arts so special. As the old saying goes, "Once you get ink in your veins, you never leave this industry." I guess, like so many others associated with printing, the blood that flows in my body isn't red—it's magenta.
