I once copy-edited an article about a woman who'd had an affair with her supervisor and then sued him for sexual harassment. The article as written went on to say that she had asked to be placed under another supervisor. I managed to suggest the phrase "assigned to," rather than saying, "Now that's laziness."
I was proofreading social science books, a job that offered the spiritual benefits of exposure to political views I don't share, and paid me for it as well. There was a Marxist history of economics, a communalist tract that made me think of my other gig (resistance is futile; prepare to be assimilated), and a book on the wonders of primitivism. It wasn't all from the Left, though. An earlier assignment was so enthusiastic about "entrepreneurs" I expected the About the Author to include, "has been granted the privilege of fellating several business leaders."
