Realizations happen in weird ways. This morning out of the clear blue, the first thought I had when I woke up was, “Shit, we spelled ‘flak’ wrong on our latest cover.”
That’s not quite as bad as not offering UPT response space in the last issue’s Grim Rigger column, “Riggers, the SkyHook and AADs: Pay Your Money, Take Your Chances.” That realization came much slower and developed over time into a “yup, I was wrong on that call” feeling.
UPT is drafting up a response for our next issue, and we’ve already gotten a letter to the editor in response, which is in this issue.
To make a long story short, we screw up. Well, mostly me. I’m constantly finding mistakes in our issues that just plain got missed or were the wrong choice to begin with. To be fair, I find mistakes in just about every CNN article and book, too. It’s what I do. Anyway, I hope you’ll all forgive us. Well, mostly me. Forgive and write letters to the editor. firstname.lastname@example.org
