That kind of editor

The best editors I’ve worked with could edit just about anything because they were interested in everything, read voraciously, and had a broad, sweeping knowledge of so many subjects that they’d give the best “Jeopardy” contestants a run for their money.

It’s editors like that who could edit an article on Yahoo! Movies, and spot a mistake about a totally different subject:

macaroon

Those editors would know the difference between a macaron and a macaroon — and wouldn’t need to refer to this illustration from Lovely Little Details:

macaron

Yahoo! should get it some of that kind of editor.
