@DianaMarcum @latimes I do remember a couple of easy webby reads I handled when we ran out of real copy editors. Maybe we can simply agree to credit @karihow and @steveclowLA? :-)
@DianaMarcum The @latimes archives reveal your talent with words. And I remember your clean copy. I'm not surprised. :-)
@CraigPaddock1 @EditorMark That @#$%&! technology. :-) But, no, I would not give up on correspondents who got my name wrong. Usually they would figure it out and apologize. Plus, I figure, empathy and forgiveness are essential elements in the editor's (and manager's) tool kit.
@EditorMark Yeah, my German forebears were particular about that. Random correspondents and even, on occasion, my friends have trouble with the number and ordering of the consonants. It has been a lifelong lesson for this editor to be careful about spelling. :-)
