They Shoot Copy Editors, Don't They?

What does this kitty have to do with copy editing? To find out, read the article that ran in the latest issue of the American Copy Editors Society's newsletter. I have scanned it as jpegs, so you'll have to call up the first segment of the story, which is here. Then link here to read the last part of the story. Actually, this story is about how one Universal Desk, at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, operates. It explains such things as how they're set up, who does what, what their philosophy is and how they have fun. While their entire setup may not work for us, you may find some interesting ideas in this.
