Ivins was known for wearing blue jeans to work, even at the New York Times. So, Turner makes her entrance on stage, wearing tight black jeans, a blue jean shirt and red, Texas-style boots. There's a bulky AP machine on one end of the stage and an old metal desk, with an ancient typewriter on it, at the other end. Turner promptly sits in a worn-looking chair, props her feet up on the desk, leans back and says with a drawl, "I'm writing. This is what writing looks like. It's 75 percent thinking, 15 percent typing and 10 percent caffeine."
