The old snark goes that those who can’t do, teach, and those who can’t write, edit (the punctuation on this irritates my editorial eye, but you catch my drift). That may be so, but the good folks over at Money magazine have deemed editing a “better” profession than writing. In a list of the top 50 jobs, editors even cracked the top 20. So there.

Update
Um, where did Money’s editors (har har) get their information? According to their research, an editor’s average compensation is $78,242. Where the hell do these editors work? And are there any openings at that office?
