Historical/Biographical Note:

Howard Brubaker was an editor of Success and  Liberator and a contributor to  Collier's Weekly,  The New Republic,  Saturday Evening Post,  Country Gentleman, and many other magazines. He published over 100 short stories and a number of non-fiction pieces on contemporary affairs, especially national politics. He is best known for "Of All Things", a by-liner column that ran weekly in the  New Yorker for over twenty-five years. This column was composed of six or eight two sentence paragraphs that offered humorous and satirical comments on contemporary happenings and personages. Many of these brief paragraphs were reprinted in newspapers across the country.
