Letter to the editor 2, Feb. 4, 2021
I enjoy your Soapbox column.
As a young man (a much younger man) I worked as a reporter for a bunch of Canadian newspapers, then spent years as a reporter and editor for The Canadian Press in Toronto and New York.
Copy was filed from New York to the then-CP central circuit in Canada at a maximum 66 words a minute on teletype machines of the day. I learned to be a fast and brutal editor.
The holdover is that I still ‘edit’ as I read.
But I don't edit your column. It flows. It's well put, always nice and interesting reading.
