Though I am out of the office this week, I couldn't leave this message from a reader, a lawyer in Cincinnati, lying about:
Your blog is outstanding. …
I'm not familiar with the personalities of the players in the copy-editing community, but I can say that after the past few months of tracking your blog, Doug Fisher's blog, Nicole Stockdale's blog, and Bill Walsh's blog, I have tremendous regard for the work that all of you do and the standards that you strive to maintain. I suspect that the effort to maintain your blogs is a labor of love, but it must take at least some time from your days. … I'll say thanks. It's nice to have a place to go online to learn something useful. You copyeditors are incredibly sharp.
