c.f. recent post re: Editors Who Don't Read

I'm going to become one of them. I can see it already. I can't imagine ever wanting to open a book again.

And yet at the same time I DESPERATELY CRAVE typeset, proofread text that I don't have to correct in my mind.

My eye!! It twitches!!

I've always agreed with rhs notion. I work for two of them and I too fear that I'm becoming one of them.

Well, in my case, these days if it doesn't come in an 8-1/2" x 11" glossy format with pictures of white dresses and floral arrangements, I'm not interested.

Fuck. Sorry.

"rhs" in line 1 was supposed to be "this."

I'm becoming an editor who doesn't edit anymore.

(i was going to write "embarrassed" but i realized that i still haven't worked out how many Rs there should be)
