    HA HA HA! Now going back to read your entry title makes sense too! I should have known better than to read anything like that when I’m this tired, because I didn’t figure out why I was having such a hard time reading it until I got to the word “penis”!! So I didn’t even bother to go back and try to find all the errors–I knew I would be ashamed of myself. I bet you got all of ’em, huh?

    If anyone in the industry still thinks that copy editors aren’t worth their weight in news print from that column, I am living proof that having someone over our shoulder in the collaborative effort that is publishing news works best.

    I have gotten better at going at it solo because you are still figuratively over my shoulder, but I know my work was better when you were that person literally over my shoulder.

    Well, mostly it was me over your shoulder as you pointed out my all to human flaws.
