Better Than None

Regarding your editorial “Getting It Right” (September 1993) on accuracy: “Dictionaries are like watches; the best is better than none, and the best cannot be expected to be quite true.”—Samuel Johnson.

I would rather have an American Heritage that is not quite true than no American Heritage at all. I think most of your readers feel the same way.

Keep up the good work.

We hope you enjoy our work.
