John and I both have letters of response to this article in the latest Dartmouth Free Press (not yet available online). I end my letter by quoting Margaret Thatcher, but the editors got the quotation wrong. They write "Yes, but there's not much to react to." It should be, "Yes, but there's so much to react to." It's not only their fault, since the original that I submitted had "no" instead of "so." Apologies for being careless on my part. But surely the editors would have realized that Maggie could not possibly have said "there's not much to react to." It doesn't even make sense in context.
