Where have all the copy editors gone?

Tony Botello found another muffed headline at the KC Star.

The headline should read, Amid uncertain future, Tour of Missouri bike race concludes in KC

What do you expect. All we have left are affirmative action hood rats and low rent bitches.

The copy editors are gone and the reporters are overloaded and hence making more mistakes.

I'm betting that the useless editorial department still has a copy editor.

What's missed in these trivial errors is the work copy editors did cleaning up articles and making them more readable. Or, a good copy editor can word edit your piece so that it fits on the page without having to gut half your piece. Everyone I worked with at The Star was a gem and a professional.

I recently went down to The Star building to see my old pals. I was shocked at what a ghost town it has become. I'm so glad I left when I did. The workload must be horrendous. Someone said to me that no one complains because they don't have time to have a pity party. They go in, do their work and go home. It's such a shame to see.
