Winning redundantly

FOUND ONLINE: However, with eight seconds left in regulation, the Chiefs were in position to win the game as Ryan Succop lined up to kick a 41-yard game-winning field goal from the San Diego 23.

That sounds redundant to me, especially the win the game with a 41-yard game-winning field goal. Let's try again.

Them Indy

Found on TV: #themindyproject

I know it comes from The Mindy Project, but when I first saw it I thought it said Them Indy Project. Them Indy Project? What does that mean?

Similarly, I used to work for a newspaper whose Intranet was called the Mega Net. Online, it was themeganet, but it looked like Theme Ganet to me.

Your mind sees some funny things, 


Links: On my web site, I have links to some of my stories online.

Editorial group: If you're a writer, editor or general freelancer, you might check out my Freelance Writers and Editors group on Yahoo. We've been really active lately, and I think we've become useful to each other.

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.

Check it out: You might look at Funds for Writers, which specializes in grants for writers.
