    They laid off their copy editor to save $$.

    The editor became redundant?

    Perhaps the current copy editor is taking their job a bit too literally.

    Sounds like a good tonk with an engineer’s hammer might be in order before any kind of mechanic is summoned.

    Seems to me the embattled copy editor was in a battle.

    I saw a commercial for Victoria’s Secret:
    “There is 5 good reasons…”

    Seems they need help, as well- and just think: free Pink!!!!

    chickelit… but was the copy-editor made redundant before or after he missed the redundancy?

    A written redundancy rendered the misreading proofreader redundant.

    Can “rendered redundant” properly be used in place of “made redundant” as a synonym for “fired”?
