Many years ago in a city on the river Hudson a man whose legacy
was hardening in the sands of time found his natural gift as a
colorist for telecine.  When it became apparent that multiple
other well-meaning but unpredictable humans had access to the
machinery he employed n the daytime, he endeavored to diminish
any consequences of inevitable morning surprises by locking the
chamber containing it.  

Protests ensued and the policy changed, but 25 years later I
finally understand on a practical basis why he did that.
