How Does This Happen?
OK, I've complained about the declining standards of the publishing industry before...but today I'm reading a book in which the author has Winston Churchill writing to "Theodore Roosevelt" in 1945. How can the writer, his agent, his editor, and copy editor (if any?) miss that kind of mistake? How ignorant do you have to be not to know Franklin Roosevelt was president in WWII? And that Teddy was dead? Jeez.
