Editor = Idiot?

The one in the WaPo who let this sentence go by:
A study earlier this year in the American Journal of Epidemiology showed that among 123,000 adults followed over 14 years, those who sat more than six hours a day were at least 18 percent more likely to die than those who sat less than three hours a day.
All it would have taken was the addition of one word, such as "prematurely" or "sooner" or "earlier".

Besides that, a practice that is endorsed by Donald Rumsfeld is not exactly a sterling recommendation.

Regardless of our opinion of Rummy, if standing up means I will live forever I'm for it.
