As I sit near my desk there is this painting titled the “Country Editor” by Norman Rockwell. The focal point of the painting is an older gentleman sitting at a typewriter, with another gentleman looking over his shoulder. They are both analyzing an article that is being written, mulling over the best words to use next.

Off to the right are three people talking, inevitably gossiping about the day’s events as a guy with a pipe walks in with a package. In the bottom right hand corner, a man is sitting down and is two pages in to the Monroe County Appeal.

As you go to the left side of the painting, there is a paperboy running out the door, catching a glimpse of a girl behind another typewriter.
