Over the months of discussion, I learned many things not least that Schickel, whom everyone at TIME calls Dick, prefers to be known as Richard. (Hence my frequent use here of his surname, to avoid reader confusion.) And the debate never degenerated into rancor.

Despite multiple searches, Wilson, a single mother of six who is now 65, said there was no sign of Ramona until she had been gone for seven months, when Wilson received an anonymous phone call telling her that the girl body was near the airport.

This is irking me somewhat. I don know why I care so much about statistics, especially when I the only one who sees them. It going to be a tough 3 and a half weeks to stick to my goal and restrain myself. Then I hear this faint woof whistle sound. I start to walk faster and the whistle gets louder. Until finally I am straining my neck looking up through all the trees and here is my little blue boy all fluffed up and half asleep in a small tree.

Elizabeth Spiers, founding editor of Gawker, is diplomatic in discussing this approach. She says her primary concern is that the archives be preserved, something Lee already agrees with. “I’m comfortable with him as a buyer,” she says. How do we improve in these areas? The easiest way to start is by simply being more mindful of each of those people skills. Just by drawing our attention to each aspect of good people skills, we can begin to improve. However, one of the challenges most of us have in improving ourselves, is that often we’re blind to what we do and say.
