Vetting The Work of Others

How many times had it been said: It’s easier to vet my own work than that of others.
How many times had it been felt: To vet someone’s work, I need to start from scratch and rewrite.

Whether you are vetting your own or the work of others, there is truly a system to the mundaneness (or madness). Having a system of orderly vetting helps.
