Does the world have too many editors?

Hamilton Nolan thinks so and he writes about what happens when too many editors take their turns with a story: "If you believe that having four editors edit a story produces a better story than having one editor edit a story, I submit that you have the small mind of a middle manager, and should be employed not in journalism but in something more appropriate for your numbers-based outlook on life, like carpet sales." A response from Jack Limpert.
