Moments in Copy Editing (As notable as "Great Moments," just not as funny)

Tardiness is disrespectful of "other peoples' time."

Should be: other people's.

Those funky plurals like people, children, women, sheep, etc. always mess me up when possession gets tossed into the mix.

How fun to have found someone who also enjoys grammar! My love (for proper grammar) is probably more 'relaxed' than yours so I look forward to checking back!

Just for giggles, which is your favorite? (I hear MLA now allows either???)
