To err is human, so we have editors; editors are human, so we have nitpickers. That came to mind reading the review of The American Magazine (“Editors’ Bookshelf,” April), where I learned that a magazine “opened our eyes to Carson McCullers’s ‘silent spring.’” The magazine was The New Yorker and the author was Rachel Carson.

We hope you enjoy our work.
