O, Lynne Truss!
Ugh, I haven't been able to blog all day because of technology trouble (on Blogger's end, not mine, for once).
But here's a start:
I laughed (out loud!) at this news release from Baylor University about Lynne Truss speaking on campus when I got to the graf about sponsor levels:
Lecture sponsors include Clark, Central National Bank and the Waco Tribune-Herald at the Managing Editors' level, and Ted and Sue Getterman, Bill and Kathy Wardlaw, Baylor Department of Journalism, Community Bank & Trust, Wells Fargo Bank and the Waco Hilton at the Copy Editors' level.Way to represent, lowly copy editors!
Truss has a new book coming out in November, and she's sweeping across the U.S. Here are some dates.
Her new book is "Talk to the Hand: The Utter Bloody Rudeness of the World Today, or Six Good Reasons to Stay Home and Bolt the Door." And, in a fun coincidence, there's a mistake in the title at Amazon.com.
