BOSS OF THE ASSEMBLY LINE
Now let me first tell you a little something here about the late Mrs. Paguio, who, despite her very excruciating and losing battle with the Big C, still managed to serve Graphic Arts Service as “Publishing Manager” to the last of her days. GASI, like any other company, of course had an owner and president, an executive vice-president, and a general manager. Well, all of these people were above the publishing manager in their corporate totem pole’s order of things. But don’t let that fool you. Anybody who ever did any business whatsoever with GASI back in those days will tell you who really ran the whole show over there: Nothing—but absolutely nothing—went down in that publication without that lady boss’ thumbs up or thumbs down signal, whether it was in the editorial , printing, or accounting departments. This was probably because none other higher-ups ever really knew GASI inside and out the way she did. Mrs. Paguio, God rest her soul, was the real power behind that comics firm.
