I was surprised this morning, while listening to an NPR Weekend Edition Sunday segment about the vanishing profession of manual typewriter repairmen, to hear none other than Harry Stephen Keeler Society head honcho (Head Keelerhead?) Professor Richard Polt talking about his own love of manual typewriters. The full interview with him is up on NPR's site.

No word yet on what brand of manual typewriter Harry used. My guess, though, is that he probably wore out his exclamation-point type-head! Repeatedly! By writing like this!
