When Norman Mailer's Harlot's Ghost was published it contained a
grammatical error in the first sentence (and one can only imagine how
many human minds proof-read the thing before it went to press):
Here it is:
"On a late-winter evening in 1983, while driving through the fog along
the Maine coast, recollections of old campfires began to drift into the
March mist, and I thought of the Abnaki Indians of the Algonquin tribe
who dwelt near Bangor a thousand years ago."
The error was subsequently corrected.
So take heart.
Bah, the latest news, the latest news is not the last.
