The Proverbial Mot Juste

      One of the main articles in the July/August Traditional Home is written by the magazine’s Senior Architecture and Design Editor, Sally Finder Weepie, a great name for an author who describes how a San Francisco designer decorates her home with a “tasteful mix of vintage treasures and youthful verve.” Sally’s name is also a great mix of a well-known proverb. It is to be presumed that both the San Francisco designer and Sally are keepers and not weepers.

Perhaps it is time for other editors to examine not just the experience of those applying for staff positions but also look ahead to see how dazzling the name below the title would appear in their periodicals. Namely,
