Keep up the good work

This morning I read this City Paper story about the difference between Ehtiopian and Eretrian food as I sipped on a delicious macchiato at the Big Bear.

"So what does that mean for other local bands? I'm glad you asked, Amanda." My point is: copy editors around this city need to start paying more attention.

Yes, I realize I have a typo in my post about careless editing. But I don't have a copy editor, and I bring this shit to you people for FREE! And also, blogger is having some sort of enormous brain fart right now and won't let me edit the post. So, um... hey! Over there! Behind you!
