Do you know who wrote this Onion story?

Me to Onion editor Will Tracy: “I don’t think I know a journalist who *hasn’t* shared the
Copy Editors/Gang Violence piece. Any interest in letting my readers know who wrote it?”

Tracy: “Ah, ’tis an Onion secret! Glad you liked it, though :-)”

Do you know who deserves credit for it? Please let me know if you do.

What the AP Stylebook editors say about the story: “We oppose violence more than we oppose the Oxford comma.”
