David Remnick, from "Reporting It All: A. J. Liebling at one hundred" published in the March 29, 2004 New Yorker: "Liebling so enjoyed himself at the offices of The New Yorker, where he worked for twenty-eight years, that he could be heard humming and snorting with laughter as he pulled the sheets from his typewriter and read them over. He knocked himself out, if he did say so himself."
