The Corner


A reader, in re my Neal Stephenson review in the current issue of New Atlantis:

“One annus mirabilis, two anni mirabiles.  See e.g. here.”

Normally I’d shrug this off with a breezy “Blame the editor!”  That’s what editors are for.  However, after four years of Latin, I really should have known better, so I’m going to claim this blooper as all my own and do appropriate penance–decline a few nouns, perhaps.
