The Pro Does Pro Bono

I am heading out the door this morning to a session re: a pro bono project, a session where a committee will edit my copy.

Committee copyediting. A fascinating concept.

Copy can always be improved, but you so rarely see five or six people standing over plumbers, suggesting what wrench they use. Do firefighters hear: "Your boots look really great. Really. And I hate to criticize, but I just don't like the way you're holding that hose."?????

I could go on, but I must go ...

P.S. I'm posting on the weekends as part of the National Blog Posting Month exercise.
