Re: “First Abrams, then Michaels, Now the "Bureaucrat"

Dear Zell wasn't all wrong,
Did some bureaucratic copy editor tinker with your nut graf? Tweak an awesome dependent clause you set off with dashes? As a copy editor at the Trib for the last 10 years, I can assure you that solitaire and recreational reading are not part of my shift. Never have been. And for at least the last three years, any slight break between our multiple deadlines must be strategically used to go to the restroom, reheat leftovers or perhaps, just maybe, on a lucky night, run across the street to get coffee or stretch our legs to prevent blood clots. So please, for the sake of accuracy, don't paint with such a broad brush. And if you want any credibility at all, use your name.
