  1. I guess I'm a flipper! Another question: when using a steno pad, as you write across the page, do you only write up to the mid-line, or do you write all the way to the right side of the page, before going down to the next line?

  2. I'm a flipper, but I'd like to get accustomed to sliding the page upward, as I go.  The article calls that "buckle".

    I enjoyed the cartoon drawing at the top of the page, and the photographs are delightful, too.

    Being left-handed, I start with the right-column, and then use the left side.  This helps keep my hand from sliding over too much ink.

    Carlos, thanks for the enjoyable article.  😉
