I found myself on four different group e-mails yesterday, some focused on the Newseum angle, others on whether Downes is right about the future of copy editing.
There is talk about sending letters to the Newseum people. I hope, though, that the more significant issue--the discussion of the future of copy editing--not get lost in the rush to tweak the Newseum team by making sure our tools and product are on display. Taking on the Newseum, though, is a good first start.
If you're interested in contributing to the discussion, let me know and I'll add you to the merged e-mail list. Or whatever you'd like.
And of course, the most famous headline of a generation. Sam Houston State University has a copy of this paper under glass.
