Litho Guys Über Alles


It's our job to do something new in science and publish the results in an appropriate journal. We publish new results when we have enough of them to constitute an "article". However, in our current position, whenever we have enough results to publish an article, colleagues tell us about every aspect of the article that is not "industry ready" and that we should "work on" so that the "Litho Guys" will "like it". In its current state, "Litho Guys won't like it". Who are these mythical, Litho Guys of yore?

Texas/Tenn. BBQ

We grew up in Texas but never really had any great BBQ. The distinguishing characteristic of some Texas BBQ is a sweet, possibly tomato-based sauce. So most places selling "BBQ" in Texas slather on this kind of sauce to cover up tough/dry/not tasty meat. Many, many years later we ended up in Nashville for a conference and were lucky enough to eat at a Whitt's BBQ. It was a revelatory experience.
