Copy Editors of the World, Untie!

Conventional wisdom has long held that the potential danger in misusing even one letter -- such as leaving the "r" out of "friend," turning the word into "fiend" -- is serious enough to warrant the hiring and retention of copy editors, grammar and usage mavens whose collective vigilance has been known to save many a crack reporter or star columnist from major embarrassment.

So when work broke that the New York Times was rumored to be considering layoffs among its copy editing staff of up to 50%, employees at the Old Gray Lady staged a walkout protest.

And what better way to make the point that copy editors are much needed -- more so today, arguably, than ever before -- than by displaying signs with messages that underscored the need for some careful copy editing.
