>The folks in charge of my internship asked me if I would be interested in doing some editing. I said that would be OK. The editor said I'd get paid for it. I replied that I would, in fact, love to do as much editing as they need.

Here is what I learned so far: people do not understand how to use commas. This is not a new lesson; I've noticed in other things that I read that my generation, myself included, has an uneasy relationship with this particular piece of punctuation. Possibly the only punctual tool more misused is the semi-colon, which is something that I really don't understand, either.

Just an observation that amuses me that I thought I'd share.
