Dubious distinction dept.
Today I was blind-emailed one of those virtual promotional posters that are so popular on Facebook, list-serves, and the internet in general. Nothing unusual about that - I must average a dozen a day, not counting the ones with cats. But this one happened to contain a quote from something I wrote.
I guess I should feel honored, and I do. Pretty much. But . . . whoever copied it made a rather obvious and embarrassing typo. I'm sure my copy editor will throw his cup of coffee against the wall when it gets around to him.
Could be worse, I guess. The words could have been printed over a picture of a kitten.
