Gina Hertel <Ghertel -at- ALPHA88 -dot- COM> wrote an impassioned plea against
having TWs proofread everything, and I agree with most of it.

Actually I think that would be kind of entertaining. Tastes differ,

Anyway, as several people have pointed out, a TW is not necessarily a
proofreader or editor, and TWs tend to be more expensive than either.
