Cutting Krypto

It may be self-indulgent for me to write more than one post about a biography of Superman, but I couldn't resist linking to this hysterical article by Glen Weldon presenting the "transcript" of an argument with his editor concerning the inclusion of thirteen pages on Krypto the Super-dog, Superman's Kryptonian pet. Any writer will sympathize with Weldon's desire to hang on to every bit of esoterica he spent hours writing and researching, while any editor will be reminded why writers are the worst.
