Lousy Editing


I recently wrote an article for an academic journal. The general editor wanted me to make some minor changes, one of which was to update a reference.

The reference in question was to Robert Burns' 1786 poem, To a Louse, which includes the lines:
O wad some Pow'r the giftie gie us
To see oursels as ithers see us!

I tried contacting Mr Burns to see if he'd brought out anything more recent on the topic, but I couldn't find his email address.
