Separate names with a comma.

I corrected a PS sort of like this. The problem wasn't necesarily the grammar. Instead, it was that the content didn't say much about the person and that it didn't appeal directly to medicine (more like a personal ad).
The best thing to do is to be honest. Of course, you need to filter out your comment and make sure that it doesn't aggravate the situation, but things need to be said.
I did the same thing, told the person he totally needed to re-do his PS, and he thanked me for my candid remark. Hopefully, my comment made his PS that much better.
Don't be afraid to be an editor above a friend.
Oh yeah, and looking at your avatar, I doubt that you'll have much trouble being benevolent.
Thanks, Dr. Pepper, for the advice. Makes me feel better about the situation. The writer is a friend of mine, and I'd rather be completely honest and suggest a re-writing.
