} Ernest Hemingway lived in a simpler time. A time when men were men and
} women were women (except for Dorothy Parker, who was Marie of Romania,
} and Marilyn Monroe, who was an android from Mars, but it's basically
} accurate). A time when what was important was deeds. Deeds were
} important! Leins were pretty important too, and certificates of title,
} but deeds were king. So, anyways, Ernie wrote about deeds, but his
} editor said to him "Mr. Hemingway, you have no head for real estate.",
} so he wrote about other things instead. He also threatened to take
} several of the most important reviewers on drinking expeditions with him
} if they wrote bad reviews.
} He didn't sell his soul to the devil, although at one point he offered
} the devil Van Gogh's ear in exchange for a new typewriter.
