    Wow, this sounds like a really worthwhile event. Editing is a subject that never, ever gets discussed, but poor editing can ruin the presentation of the art.

    I’d love to make it if I could. Somebody tell me again why I moved from Palm Springs to Chattanooga?

    Hey Jerry – I know you chose the accompanying Daffy Duck screen grabs because they’re classic, and fit the topic so well. Just as food for thought, however: Chuck Jones always claimed Looney Tunes weren’t edited – not in the traditional sense, anyway. They had to be timed to the last nanosecond by the director, due to Leon Schlesinger’s supposed stinginess, (at least according to Jones.)
