OK, one more
I figured I'd share this Jayson Blair tidbit only because it's gossippy and mentions a copy editor:
Blair says one copy editor on the metro desk, who favoured marijuana, "always seemed to be stoned and, at the same time, wrote some of the best headlines".True? Probably not. But funny.
(And I'm going to guess Blair didnt write the British "favoured" but that the Australian newspaper changed it. Tsk tsk.)
