A longtime journalist recently sent an email to a bunch of colleagues with
notice of a typewriter for sale. The journalist sent along assurance
that  the machine works perfectly and is in excellent
condition. His colleagues responded with some detailed queries about
this “device.” Any questions of your own for the seller?

I must take issue with your comment that this device “works perfectly”. It appears to lack a monitor, has no ports, is minus a mouse and has no power cable. What sort of scam are you trying to pull?

What about your green eye-shade, your metal sleeve garters and the half bottle of rye in the bottom drawer? No journalist outfit is complete without ’em.
