The Onion Weighs In on Style Choice

From my newsletter that covers marketing and career building for writers--and, of course, that includes editing:


In the News:  Those of you who might think I overdo my mini rants about the difference between style choices and grammar rules a la The Frugal Editor (http://budurl.com/TheFrugalEditor) and Great Little Last-Minute Editing Tips (http://budurl.com/WordtrippersPB) need to see this essay from the Onion. At least satire isn't dead or didn't get killed. http://www.theonion.com/articles/4-copy-editors-killed-in-ongoing-ap-style-chicago,30806/
