5 bullets from the lone Granger

David Granger will receive a Missouri Honor Medal this evening. I’ll recap his presentation — “My modest attempt to prove anything is possible” — in the next post, but for now, here are some quick hits from the Esquire editor-in-chief.

• Story ideas: “Even if I can’t participate in an act of imagination, I can support it.”

• Putting “you” on cover lines is supposed to be inclusive, but you is not us. “I like we.”

• The NYT is a miracle every day.

Use the margins. Esquire once published a 1700-word fiction piece on a running bottom margin.

• “Do things people fail to expect.”
