Noe Valley Voice April 2000

Voice Proofreader Walkout

By Umlaut Thurman

The Noe Valley Voice is sorry to announce that our longtime proofreader Anita Raise has left us for greener pastures. During her 132 years on the staff, she also worked as our fact checker. Raise was responsible for noticing and alerting us to the giant coffee spill on 24th Street and also the Watergate break-in.

When 29th Street resident Ann Persand hit her head and fell into a comma, Raise informed us that it was most likely due to a colon problem.

With the recent installation of spell-check on our computers, we believe that despite her absence, we canned continue to maintain the usual high qualify of the Voice.
