About Alan

The editor is a former systems manager for a large California-based HMO, and a former senior systems manager for Northrop, Hughes-Raytheon, Computer Sciences Corporation, Perot Systems and other such organizations. One position was managing the financial and payroll systems for a large hospital chain. And somewhere in there was a two-year stint in Canada running the systems shop at a General Motors locomotive factory - in London, Ontario. That explains Canadian matters scattered through these pages. Otherwise, think large-scale HR, payroll, financial and manufacturing systems. A résumé is available if you wish. The editor has a graduate degree in Eighteenth-Century British Literature from Duke University where he was a National Woodrow Wilson Fellow, and taught English and music in upstate New York in the seventies, and then in the early eighties moved to California and left teaching. The editor currently resides in Hollywood California, a block north of the Sunset Strip.

I made yet another trip to North Dakota last weekend – 310 miles each way, to clean out my Uncle’s farm property, many trips this summer – and enroute home was stuck in I-94 traffic on Sunday: the bunch coming back to the Cities from the lakes. We were stop and go, so couldn’t use cruise control, only my legs. Got a bad cramp in the right leg, and had to pull over and get out for a few minutes to stretch out. Yes, age has a way of reminding….
