Instead, legislators crafted a ballot question about treating crime victims "fairly" that was so vaguely worded that voters had no idea what they were being asked to support, according to a lawsuit filed by the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Letter: More of Ed and Editing

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
Doug, your critique of Ed's "never proofreading" his work brings to mind a couple of conversations which took place repetitiously over a period of years.

Number one, Ed often articulated the difficulty of proofing one's own work.

Number two, we both agreed that searching for one's own foul balls detracted from the capacity of the creative genius to hit home runs.

Number three, mistakes, according to Ed, were a great tool to attract and focus the attention of readers. --BJF
