    Standing ovation... To be perfectly honest, I was hoping for something much more destructive, but that's just me...

    I'm surprised this has never made the board, but four or five copy editors who were let go by a major paper earlier this year have started going through the section daily and having one of their mothers (in her 80s) call the publisher, the executive editor and the managing editor's voice mail every day to point out every mistake in the paper.

    There was a link to this off Romenesko a few months ago and I was surprised no one linked to it. I'll see if I can find it... Funny stuff...

    It was from one of those alternative-weekly papers that we rely on so much for news regarding the demise of this industry and regrettably, I cannot find the link...

    All this for a freaking memo?

    Yes, Drip, a freaking memo.

    One that says the editor in question is in danger of losing his or her job because the work he or she does may well be contracted out of the newsroom. You know, nothing serious that any responsible journalist should be worried about. ::)

    This goes well beyond the memos that were hung up in Richmond with various typos that people would just walk past and circle the errors. This is WAY better.
