Needs editing: I just saw a TV network with LESS COMMERCIALS at the bottom of the screen. It's not less commercials; it's FEWER commercials. Take my word for it.
House it: A Fresno State player scored two touchdowns Friday night, and some guy on ESPN said that he housed it twice. Gag.
Cool stuff: Have you heard of a palindrome? It's a word that's spelled the same forward and backward (kayak, level and racecar are examples, although I think of race car as two words). ... Only four words in the English language end in 'dous': tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous.
Blogs: If you have an editing or writing blog (or if you have a particular entry you're proud of), let me hear about it. It doesn't even have to be a writing or editing blog. I just like good writing. Thanks.
Contact: I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Also, my Twitter handle is EDITORatWORK.
