A Note From the Office Manager
Let me begin by saying that I love hats. This is undoubtedly a good thing because during my 15 plus years at Logic, I have worn and continue to wear many different hats. Let me take you through a typical day:
When I first arrive at the office in the morning, I usually put on my hat for tidying up the kitchen, which includes making sure there is plenty of water in the hot pot for tea as well as in the Keurig for coffee drinkers. While this might not sound important, that first cup of tea or coffee can definitely make a difference in the mood of some employees. You know who you are.
Jimmy’s Corner: High-Speed Trains, High-Speed Technology
The train conductor announced “We are now entering the new high-speed section from Kalamazoo to Chicago at 100 miles per hour.” I excitedly texted my assistant, Linda, “I am going to get to Chicago in four and half hours now!” It’s an improvement from the five and half hours it took to get to Chicago a year ago on the same train.

The trip to Chicago today is the third time I’ve ridden a “high-speed” train in three weeks in three countries. Each ride gave me insight into how high-speed trains have not only affected the day-to-day schedule of people travelling from one location to another, they have also brought parts of the world closer together for greater, more interesting experiences.
