One day on the roof, having drinks after the Games-sponsored tournament at NYU.
First Issue: Jul 1985
There's nothing too mysterious about my nom. At the time, I was a high school librarian, and I wrote what seemed like hundreds of passes everyday for kids to come and go - especially “go”. It was JLT. JLT, all day long. So it seemed only natural to be Jaelti. I actually considered another nom, based on my last name (Tintle). I was going to be “Title”, on the presumption that no “Nu's” was good news; also, the book connection. But I decided it was too obscure.
