Editors are good for any of us who write. I agree. I also think some reporters depend on an editor to be a backstop so they have gotten a little lazy. For example, you use the word "reoccurred" in your third paragraph. No such word. It is "recurred". To eliminate mistakes, go to the root of the problem, where the mistake occurred. Too many reporters think they can be lax and it is some editor's job to clean up their copy. In their mind, if something gets through, it's the editor's fault. Mistakes cut into our credibility. Readers do notice these things.
