From Jim M.: A Quote from Mickey Spillane

From Jim M, 08 March 2008:

It's the birthday of crime novelist Mickey Spillane, the pen name of Frank Morrison, born in Brooklyn, New York (1918). I thought that you might appreciate this quote from him.

"If you're a singer you lose your voice. A baseball player loses his arm. [But] a writer gets more knowledge, and if he's good, the older he gets, the better he writes."
