Why We Need Editors

TheAtlantic.com's senior editor Alex Madrigal makes a compelling case against the marginalization of editors in the digital age.  Just look at the recent appreciation for design -- and the success of a movie named after a font [Helvetica] -- and it's clear that the public, too, can grasp the shortcomings of DIY.  Madrigal argues that editors are like the pavers of writerly roads, and that it's only a matter of time until the bumps start to bother us.
