Last quote by William Safire

Whenever I have a hot hand – that is, writing with easy passion and at high speed – I hate to stop and look up a fact, preferring to put in TK, thereby promising the editor to supply the missing item later. (Sometimes I forget, and the researcher and copy editor don't catch it, and we all look like jerks.).feedback
