JUST ABOVE SUNSET – as a commentary site – has gone dark, at least for now. For now there’s just occasional photography.
City Winter (40 images): California Plaza on Grand Avenue, at the top of Bunker Hill at the center of Los Angeles, in winter, the second winter of the pandemic. The glass skyscrapers are empty. The streets are empty. This used to be the center of everything. Not now. This winter may never end. ~ Monday, January 10, 2022
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.
