Non mea culpa

Big proposal due this week. Too big for me to handle alone.

We brought in two temp editors yesterday.

I did a final review of the proposal to ready it for the Gold Team review—the Suits’ last chance for input prior to production.

Part of my review included eyeballing the sections done by the temps.
Oh.My.God. Typos (spell check not run; unforgivable); the company name spelled wrong (cardinal sin of the first order); and more.

I ran down the litany for the proposal coordinator—the best defense . . .

But the temps are long gone. And the Suits know where I live.
