Just tack that on to my job responsibilities

Papers' next big thing seems to be starting an at-a-glance section (The Miami Herald, the St. Paul Pioneer Press and, coming soon, the Dallas Morning News).

Copy editors, make sure you are part of these discussions because it should mean lots of work for your desk. That's not a bad thing, necessarily, because without the responsibility the project wouldn't fly. But it's a lot of work to add to a staff that is already overburdened, as so many in the United States are.

Check out this thread at the Visual Editors board. I learned some fascinating tidbits, such as that copy editors were run through two weeks of training during the recent redesign at the Wall Street Journal. And the items in the second and third columns of the Journal every day take eight-hour shifts for two copy editors.
