BILL WALSH

I'm Bill Walsh, and I'll be your slot man.

B
y night, I earn my living as a copy editor at The Washington Post. By day and late, late night, just for kicks, I work on The Slot, which began in August 1995 as the Crusty Old Slot Man's Copy-Editing Peeve Page. The Slot is not affiliated with The Post -- my comments here may or may not reflect Post style.

If I screw something up, let me know. After eight or nine hours of work and two or three Old Milwaukees, I don't always live up to my own ideals. As they say, anyone who checks his own copy has a fool for an editor.

To learn more about me, check out my resume -- or skip ahead to the personal details, in case you're the nosy type. And in the "Why is this counter stuck on zero?" department, if you just can't get enough of my ranting you can check out my other Web sites.

(And if you're thinking, " 'My resume'? That should be résumé, shouldn't it?" you should know I generally eschew accent marks. See the "No way, Jose" entry in "Lapsing Into a Comma.")
