It was all the computer's fault, actually.  If the computer setup at the campaign headquarters had been better, Jim never would have suggested that he and Tracy go to his place to work on the leaflet.  But the computer at campaign headquarters was old and slow, and it had pitiful memory capacity.  His swank publishing [...]
