    I opined earlier on another thread that copy editors will be phased out because their product is not tangible. They don't produce the words that go on the page or the pages themselves.

    It's unfortunate. It's a lot like if all the NFL quarterbacks next year had to start playing without a QB coach, without that guy who is watching to make sure the footwork is right, the ball is delivered from the right angle, that the eyes are staying down the field. Next thing you know, those little things slip away.

    Poor copy editors won't be missed, but good copy editors are and will remain valuable at shops that value their product.
  4. Are there any of those shops left, Editude?
