Staffing Changes

Dear reader:

We know there are a lot of blogs out there. Really too many, actually. We here at the Guatemala Holla appreciate your readership, and strive to provide you with a certain standard of quality in whatever exactly it is we do here. It is with that in mind that we have sacked our copy editor. We hope to find one soon who knows the difference between "its" and "it's," one can spell "correspondent," and, if we're lucky, one who could walk us through the whole "who" versus "whom" thing one more time. Please bear with us through this difficult time.

Yrs,

The Editors

Dear Editor:
Representing a small number of the readers of this blog, I submit that all staff at the Guatemala Holla have been doing a fine job. Far fewer typos and grammatical missteps than in our local Tribune. Keep up the good work!

An advertising copywriter told me this weekend that "whom" is passé. But apparently he is at war with the semicolon, so his devil-may-care approach to the comforting rules of proper English might not be for everyone.
