In a previous post I wrote about one of the silliest letters ever signed by a group of very smart people. At the end of my comment, I wrote:
If a letter from 100 United States Senators was full of spelling and grammar errors, would you trust it?
The letter was written by Peter Gleick, a MacArthur Prize winner. In a follow-up essay in the Huffington Post, he twice called ice floes “ice flows” (“there really are polar bears on ice flows”). Who says life doesn’t imitate art?
