In 1972 thereabouts, when I was accepted to Art Center College of Design =
in LA, my acceptance letter told me that while they were admitting me =
based on my work, I would almost certainly have difficulty finding =
employment after college because of my advanced age. My age at the time =
was 31.
Incidentally, I became a film major there and never finished as I was =
offered a job in film editing for a TV production company... first one =
in my class to get an industry job.
