Persona non grata III

Here's further proof that editing is, indeed, a thankless profession.

This is an excerpt from an internal, congratulatory, business-is-booming newsletter:

"Among key deals year-to-date, the XX Services Group has won:

"A $119 million extension with XX. We deliver a wide range of infrastructure support to XX's Information Technology Services office in the U.S. and internationally. We have been the incumbent contractor since 2003. Our thanks go to . . . GA, AC, EG, RR, and LM [for their work on the proposal]."

The combined effort of these five co-workers didn't approach mine. But again, I'm the invisible man, chopped liver as it were.
