  •  please allow me to elaborate (0+ / 0-)

    my editing wasn't obsessive-compulsive, but actually ideological in nature.  I didn't believe that it was was a typo, but that it was something more, something conceptual.  If I was wrong in that, please forgive the arrogance of my assumptions.  

    There are multiple layers to editing; something I learned as an academic.

    •  No worries at all! I actually thought (0+ / 0-)

      the same thing as I was posting it, but then said "screw it" because I didn't want to bother fixing it and figured the thrust of the idea would get across.  Looking back at it (from a regular computer now), it certainly would've grated on the unsuspecting reader's soul were it just left there unremedied.

      (Speaking of wordsmithing, if you happened to run across the now-GBCW'd Kossack Monique Radevu, that gal could turn a phrase...).

      •  I'm a fan (0+ / 0-)

        of good wordsmithing, and i do seem to recall that handle from earlier days in dKos history.  But I'm less a fan of writerly blog promotion.  One of my weird neuroses, a personal quirk that I can only confess, but somehow haven't yet been able to overcome.
