How good a copy editor are you?

The Washington Post's Gene Weingarten has an ode, of sorts, to copy editors today.

Actually, it's an error-filled missive that will be a great test if you want to be a copy editor -- and is a great reminder to others of the job copy editors do. (And yes, his copy is contrived, but we all have seen such junk come across a desk and -- in my case as a former reporter -- have written it, too.)

(Thanks to the ACES board for the pointer.)
