It's actually true that there are some folk who are generally not superstitious, but still feel that the hat on the bed is bad news. Back in Kelly's heyday, many people wore hats and many avoided the act, though the superstition may date back to the cowboy days, when, uh, lice would tumble out of the hat into the bedding. Whatever.
And Red Smith was a sports writer of Kelly's generation who was very quotable.
My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
