The red pen is less mighty than the pliers

18Mar05

I sent this e-mail to the IT department today:

A—-,In my capacity as copyeditor, I would like to make a request: Would it be possible to have IT come up and pry the semicolon key off a coworker’s keyboard? He has never once used a semicolon correctly, and after having attempted to address the issue on previous occasions, I feel that this is the now the only way to resolve the problem.

I shall be obliged,

Peter Lynn
Copy Editor
