An Apology

In my most recent blog, on explaining Obama, there are several errors, particularly at least two places where I have left important words out.  I have made similar errors in a couple of other blogs.  In some cases, I have caught them—or others have—quickly enough to remove the original blog and replace it with a corrected one.

The errors have been a result of trying to write something quickly on recent events and, I must admit, trying to rush into print before others do.  That’s my excuse, but it isn’t good enough. I will have to do a better job of proofing in the future.

I recall a story about a lawyer who defended an otherwise indefensible tenant by showing that the landlord had omitted the word "not" in the lease in a place where it claimed to have intended it.

In a lease words really matter, sometimes. In a blog essay, not so much.

We all edit in haste and repent at leisure. You are not alone
