We Need a Desk Slogan!

ACES member Kathy Schenck, at her blog, Words to the Wise, proposed a contest to pick a slogan for her Milwaukee Journal Sentinel copy desk. Here are some of that copy desk's ideas as well as slogans proposed by others:

"You write it, we right it."
"We delete in serving you."
"It's way too late to fix this."
"To write is human, to edit is divine."
"Nobody knows the garbles we've seen."
"My typo people."
"Word woes loom; betterment eyed."
"Edit free or die."
"It's never banal to be anal."
"The less hed, the better."
"The first cut is the sweetest."
"This chop shop makes a fortune in stolen participles."
"Surgery first, liquid anesthetics later."
"The scene of a brutal slotter."
"My kid can out-edit your honor student."
"We save more butts than ‘Baywatch.'"

Now, what about us? Do you have ideas for a Ventura County Star Universal Desk slogan? Send them to me and I'll post them.
