Deb Howell’s Column About Copy Editors Could Have Typos In It

Wrote Washington Post ombudsman Deb Howell in an internal posting on the WaPo’s messaging system at 8:08pm last night:

    I intend to write a column soon on copy editors, which appear to be a vanishing breed in the newspaper business — something that worries me greatly. I would appreciate any anecdotes or anything else that would be helpful.

Wrote Washington Post ombudsman Deb Howell in an internal posting on the WaPo’s messaging system at 8:41pm last night:

    Couldn’t live without Vince or the editorial copy desk, who clean me up every week.
