I wrote this article on the inadequacy of the left's critique of the Iraq war for the Daily Star. Tim Cavanaugh was kind enough to pick it up for the Reason website, provoking what I see was a rather spirited exchange.

One of the things that made it spirited was a glaring error, namely my reference to George Orwell's Homage to Catalonia and The Road to Wigan Pier as "novels." Under the circumstances, a reader might assume I was mentioning two books I had never read. I can confirm, wiping egg off my face, that I read Homage once and Wigan Pier twice.

Will that change anything? We're invariably viewed by the light of our latest erratum.
