What Does it Mean to be Argus-Eyed?

Yesterday’s post brought me a bunch of e-mails asking, “What the heck is an Argus-eyed editor?”

Well, not to make those inquisitive minds feel badly, but if those people had a copy of Grit for the Oyster, they would know that little fact…

Argus was a hundred-eyed giant from Greek mythology. Legend has it that after Argus was killed, his eyes were put in the tail of a peacock. When one is called Argus-eyed, it means he is watchful, sharp-sighted and extremely vigilant.
