It has come to my attention recently that I have made a few errors on the blog recently. Nothing earth shattering, but they merit some discussion.
1. Neve Campbell was in Scream while Jennifer Love Hewitt was in I Know What You Did Last Summer. Obviously, I did not watch either movie. Had I done so, I would have not confused the two while making the metaphorical suggestion of the slasher/ fisherman character to David Yassky's political career. The fisherman character kind of lingers around in the background at key points in the movie, despite the fact that Hewitt did run him down on a foggy road in the beginning of the movie. In Scream, you rarely see the guy in the mask until he slashes you, but there are multiple sequels and no sign of slowing down. I believe the metaphor still stands, but more towards I Know What You Did Last Summer than Scream. My apologies.
2. Also, among the many hurried mispellings that sometimes appear here is the one I used when referring to a minyan. Instead, I wrote "minion". A minyan is a quorum needed for certain Jewish obligations while a minion is a term for a favorite or protege to an aristocratic figure. An example. Notice how the two can get easily confused:
Vito had so many Hasidic supporters at Steve Levin's victory party that they easily formed a minyan!
Vito had so many Hasidic supporters at Steve Levin's victory party that they easily formed a minion!
It's not as bad as the time that I referred to the late President of the Mormon Church as John Hinckley (instead of Gordon Hinckley), but we all make slippages from time to time.
(Updated: Further spelling errors fixed. Yikes.)
