Larry David on the copy desk
While watching the season finale of "Curb Your Enthusiasm
" last night, I was struck by this line from Larry David:
"I'm not an inventor. I'm an improver. I see things that are wrong, and I improve them."
Would Larry be a good copy editor? His persona is reminiscent
of a few copy editors I've known. I can see him on the rim.

I noticed that line in the show, too, but did not make the copy editing connection at the time. But, yeah, I can see Larry as a copy editor.
I also have known a copy editor with some Larry like personality quirks.
