this tab has been open since June 2019, evidently from search for “sideways glance” (?).

epigram, page 96

“I detested school,” he [Clive Cussler] told Publishers Weekly in 1994. “I was always the kid who was staring out the window. While the teacher was lecturing on algebra, I was on the deck of a pirate ship or in an airplane shooting down the Red Baron.”
— Robert D. McFadden, “Clive Cussler, Best-Selling Author and Adventurer, Is Dead at 88,” The New York Times, February 27, 2020 : A27
