Sally's use of a *green* ink pen should remind some of us
of the former thread on this list over the benefits of
editing with an ink color other than red. (If I recall correctly,
the thread was considered frivolous at the time.)
Well I've been looking for a chance to tell you guys that I
bought a really cool set of pens in bright neon colors about
two months ago. They are fine-line Faber Castell uni-ball
pens, and they are perfect for editing, especially if several
reviewers might see the same draft. The colors are orange,
blue, green, pink, purple, and raspberry (all bright). I got
my set at Sam's (the Wal-Mart warehouse store chain).
