Incredible PELOTON story of an Italian reporter and his Olivetti Lettera 32 at the Tour de Frace, still a team after decades of covering cycling and other sports.
Great writing and soulful pictures for Peloton by photojournalist James Startt. Tomorrow I am going to write something about this great race on my Lettera 32; so inspiring! The Lettera 32 was always a favorite for on-the-scene reporting; there are great shots of it being used in Vietnam, and ringside at some of the greatest Ali fights. ICYMI — here is a boss NYT story about James Startt and how he covers the world’s longest sporting event. Great stuff. Thanks, Gianni and James for getting out there and bringing the race stories to us.

Here’s the “sig” cartoon of Joe McGinniss, at his start, banging out a Metro Column
on an unidentified typewriter for the Philadelphia INQUIRER. For a story about the days when a
Metro columnist could say, “I’d rather cover the Viet Nam war than City Council…” and
wind up on a plane for Saigon in short order, click here.
