Great letter in the Boston Globe the other morning that MRP just happened to catch up with yesterday.
Call him Starbuck
January 8, 2007
REGARDING “AHAB’S apostles” (City & Region, Jan. 5): In a feature purporting to celebrate the preservation of great literature, your reporter, in unconscious irony, names Ahab’s first mate Starbucks. Whoever allowed this gaffe to go to print should be harpooned.
In trying to find out more about this letter, MRP ran into a kindred spirit over at Squaring the Boston Globe, who confirms my theory that you could in fact base an entire blog on pointing out errors in the Globe.
