I started as a freelance writer for The Times in the mid-1970s, a technological Stone Age when reporters still used typewriters. I was so flustered on my first assignment, I spooled the special carbon paper backward, until an editor gently touched my shoulder and reversed my mistake. Considering my inexperience, the editor had given me a big break. He had commissioned a concert review for Calendar: 50 bucks for my take on El Gran Combo, the fun-loving dance band from Puerto Rico.
