To Hell in a Handbasket

Well, not really. But the September 1 issue of The New Yorker had the following, in an article about Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava:
In an effort to keep the cost of the project below two and a half billion dollars, changes to the underground mezzanine were being evaluated, including a dimunition of public space.

Do they not have spell check? Even Blogger knows that one's a turkey.

Dimunition -- sounds sorta like a word that would describe the act or process of editors becoming dimmer, eh?

Or small weaponry?

:-D

Heh, heh. Ren would appreciate your nitpicking. Speaking of Ren, it's his 40th birthday on Sunday and I'm trying to gather 40 birthday greetings from friends and family. Could you email me a short happy birthday message for him? (My email is on my blogspot profile). I also don't know how to get a hold of John. Could you email me his email address or send this on to him? I would GREATLY appreciate it!
