endangered editors

Back over a year ago - wow, I didn't realize it had been that long - I wrote about my job history and my desire to work as an editor. The post was spurred by an article from USA Today, which Alkelda had sent me, that declared, "blue-pencil editing is becoming a lost art."

Earlier this week, I found a link on The Morning News to an article in UK paper The Guardian that also declares, "editors are now an endangered species."

Unfortunately, I don't really have time right now to write out some thoughts about this article and what it's saying, but it's worth a read. And I need to post now because I won't have another chance to get my post for the week done - my younger sister and her girlfriend are here for a visit, and tomorrow we're celebrating my sister's birthday.
