Another View

Nancy Nall, a sensible person, quite liked that Gary Kamiya piece that exercised me so much.

And I know one other person whose editorial judgment I respect who didn't mind it either -- or, as he said, not as much as I did.

No, just at this moment I don't know what to make of it all, frankly.

In spite of his initial claim to license by sitting on the other side of the desk, it was self-satisfied, condescending, and annoying.

I'm with you and buckner on this one.

Kamiya is to form what Schickel is to content, no?

If you strip away the over-the-topness of Kamiya's piece (editors are craftsmen, ghosts, etc. etc.) and the overwrought comparisons (sex, Stradivarius), all Kamiya is saying is that most writing benefits from editing. Which is so obvious that it hardly deserves to be an article. His tone is offputting, but you wouldn't disagree with his point, would you?

No, as long as we give Kamiya the benefit of the doubt and assume that his piece wasn't edited.

Yeah, I can concede that, Norman. But he's claiming that one of his functions as an editor is supposed to be the maintenance of good form: I suppose that's what the "violin-playing" is about. But then, the forms that survive into this piece aren't very good. They're good enough for newspapers -- I say that having edited a newspaper under deadline pressure: I have plenty of respect for all the economies of newspaper writing. But if his use of metaphor is anything to go by, I don't see any grounds for his condescending finger-wagging to all those unedited writers out there.
