In today's Boston Globe, columnist Cathy Young goes after Peter Landesman's NYT sex slave story with such passion she blows right by fellow critic Jack Shafer's name. It comes out twice as Schaffer, then -- oh, why not -- as Shaffer. Jack himself spells it Shafer, but it's worth noting that both Young and S(c)haf(f)er are libertarians -- and everyone knows that the correct way of spelling something is whatever the market will bear. So put down that red pen, statist, we don't need your centrally defined alphabetic hegemony here. Or hear. Or whatever.
