When CMYK Separations Were Really Separate — Chet Aero Marine

Anyone who has done any work with print is familiar with the CMYK (Cyan/Magenta/Yellow/BlacK) colour scheme. (Most web images are done with the RGB (Red/Green/Blue) scheme.) In either case the idea is that, by using a few colours and mixing them properly, one could produce the effect of many colours, thus making it possible to […]When …

William Hamilton’s God May Have Died, Mine Did Not

My parents divorced in the late 1970's. That was back in the day before our tax code made inter-spousal transfers free of estate or gift taxes, so it was a mess. (Yeah, there was such time...) After it was done, she dated an English insurance agent. The relationship never got very far, although he found …

A Thirteen Year-Old Opines on Christmas

The thirteen year-old was me, and I wrote this for the Palm Beach Day School's student newspaper the Portfolio Flyer, Volume II Issue X dated 18 December 1968: 1,972 years in the past, in a little Israeli town called Bethlehem, probably one of the most important events in the history of the world occurred.  Mary …

The Joys of Bitter Lemon — Chet Aero Marine

I grew up in a family of serious drinkers, which goes back a long way, as my grandfather’s involvement in this should attest. That meant that we had a stocked bar in the house (it wasn’t a “wet bar” in the sense that it had a sink, but it was stocked all the same.) At […] …

An old Zenith Colour Television Broadcasts the Assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King

Just about every television I grew up with was a Zenith.  So I was intrigued when I saw this video of a Zenith colour "roundie."  We had one in our family room in Palm Beach (I'm not sure whether it was this exact model but it was close.) https://youtu.be/Mo8n3jLoM_U?t=293 The sample broadcast he chose is …
