All together now
Thursday was red-letter day in the Telegraph Herald newsroom. Every member of our copy desk team was on the job. These are the folks who give stories their final edit, design pages and write headlines -- and be sure it is all done despite deadline pressures.
With an every-day publication cycle, we must schedule staffers accordingly, including weekends and holidays. On this particular day, illnesses and regular days off were not in play -- and we had everyone on the job Thursday. No one remembers the last time that happened, but it has to have been a year or two.
