The Right Nation

Walter:  I reviewed Mickelthwait and Wooldridge’s book for the late lamented New York Sun here.  The Sun’s literary editor at the time, Robert Messenger, called up to congratulate me on having used the word “armigerous.” 

I hope the paper did a better job than I did of consistently spelling the authors’ names right.  Reviewers should get time-and-a-half pay for things like that.
