College alumni magazines need copy editors to keep them from making mistakes like this one by University of North Carolina -Asheville:
Wow. I mean… Wow.
Luke, of course, did change jobs back in June. He moved from the Arizona Republic of Phoenix to the Boston Globe. I can only assume the alumni folks took their info from this blog post but then missed that key first sentence. And maybe the headline.
Luke writes on his Facebook page:
No idea where they got this, but I demand compensation!
Tell ya what, Luke. Take your demand to the head of that design firm you’re working for. And when you find him, give him my resumÃ©, willya?
You know who else needs copy editors? Pharmacies. And Tea Party candidates. And city and county Boards of Elections. And Google Newsâ€™ â€˜bots. And billboard companies. And sign painters.Â And rubber stamp designers. And restaurants. And breakfast joints. And college athletic department ticket offices. And the New York Jets and the St. Louis Cardinals. And baseball jersey manufacturers. And the Washington Post, the New York Times, CNN and Time magazine. And drive-in movie theater managers. And Home Depot and manufacturers of â€œhoodies.â€ And T-shirt designers.Â And road paving contractors. And cake decorators.
