Copy Editor's Lament - the video

I've been remiss in getting this up ---
Christopher Ave, who recorded Copy Editor's Lament (The Layoff Song) has now produced a music video. Bittersweet, to be sure - and it isn't quite MTV (hey, these are copy editors!). But let's all give it a boost in the YouTube ratings.

Yes indeed, Will Sullivan is in the video.

Thanks for posting this Doug! I really appreciate it. Here's to a better 2010 for all copy editors (and the rest of us journalists!)

Tell people to watch out for Atomic Typos, too, because spellcheck cannot find Atomic Typos, and maybe ask them to google the term so they know about it: unclear vs nuclear, for example, spellcheck cannot see that.
