We serve as each other’s editor, with one of us editing the other’s post before publication. But it takes a village and we welcome your suggested corrections — from typos to issues of larger consequence. When we spot an error shortly after posting, or when fixing typos, we simply make the change. For more substantial mistakes, we make the fix and append a correction explaining what we’ve done and why.
