No, dear, it’s Mother Teresa – no ‘h’

Irony and misspelling in the corrections department at the Grey (or is that Gray with an “a”?) Lady last week in its coverage of the now-infamous news flash that Christians might not be the most educated about religion:

An article on Tuesday about a poll in which Americans fared poorly in answering questions about religion misspelled the name of a beatified Roman Catholic nun and Nobel Peace Prize winner. She was Mother Teresa, not Theresa.

We’re the last folks to add to other publications’ miseries, and we sure like the New York Times, but the inelegant contrariness of it all has us cackling.
