PROT. LEBEDEFF



Text  



I am TOTALLY not complaining about the NRO editirx–I would NEVER do that!–but the email I posted from Prot. Alexander Lebedeff identified him, correctly, like that, with the title “Prot.,” short for “Protodeacon,” an honorific rank in the Eastern Christian churches.  The ever-vigilant editrix thought I’d committed a typo, and changed “Prot.” to “Prof.”  It’s logical, and thank goodness for conscientious editors; but apologies to Prot. Lebedeff.
