Best argument for getting a second set of eyes on your MS, courtesy of Mark Twain:
"You think you are reading proof, whereas you are merely reading your own
mind; your statement of the thing is full of holes & vacancies but
you don't know it, because you are filling them from your mind as you go
along. Sometimes--but not often enough--the printer's proof-reader
saves you--& offends you--with this cold sign in the margin: (?)
& you search the passage & find that the insulter is right--it
doesn't say what you thought it did: the gas-fixtures are there, but you
didn't light the jets."
Damned pesky jets.
