Nerdy posts I write my readers

May 11, 2011

One night while designing 2A with “People & Places” in mind, I looked on the Entertainment wire — a system whereby we “pull” articles from the Associated Press — and read an article by Chicago Tribune reporter Mark Caro on actor Rob Lowe’s new book.

Obviously, this reporter has been a copy editor, or rarer yet, a sympathizer:

Still, Lowe, a relaxed conversationalist with an easy smile and blue eyes that really pop in person, stressed he had no political goals in mind while writing “Stories I Only Tell My Friends” (which, if he’d had a strict copy editor at Henry Holt, would have been called “Stories I Tell Only My Friends” — and, really, is that “Only” even necessary?).

Love it!
