    Lesson 9-A:
    Pro tip: If you are working at a newspaper, wander back toward the copy desk and ask for last night’s page proofs.
    The desk will be likely be happy you cared enough to see what you may have missed. Usually found? Numbers of grammatical goofs, inconsistencies, first-reference misses and misspellings not caught by your editor. A good desk will hold all these proofs for about a month in a file system.
