Blogging from the Rim

Tom Mangan, a copy editor for the San Jose Mercury News, is blogging about all things copy editing. It's cranky and clever, just like a good copy editor.

The name, Prints the Chaff, comes from this Adlai Stevenson quote: "An editor is someone who separates the wheat from the chaff, then prints the chaff."

He links to a few other sites run by rim rats:

 Copy editing, damnit - "Listen to me, I know style and how to use it."
 Nicole Stockdale - "And sometimes, just sometimes, it is OK to say 'people.'"

Tim: thanks for the kind words, I've added "First Draft" to my list of editor's blogs.
