I have come to realise the need to acknowledge a major error on this blog. Errors will occur, of course, but when they occur it is important to admit them and to own them, to make amends to the extent that is possible.
Where is my major blog error? I don’t think i’ve made it. Yet. But I will.
I’m pretty damn careful, if only out of concern for self-preservation: being strong and public with my criticisms, there is no shortage of out-of-joint noses sniffing for any mistake I might make.* But if I haven’t yet screwed up it is still inevitable that I will. And when I do, I hope I will have the integrity to acknowledge it.
