Elliott Replies

Christopher Elliott replies to my criticism of his recent article on the five best flights in America. Well, sort of. He finds a typo.

    ** Winging It
    Subscriber Doug Jensen shared an item in Gary Leff’s “View From The
    Wing” blog in which he took me to task for last week’s column on the
    best airline flights. In it, Leff writes that the story “really set
    me off” and then proceeded to say that I “offered tidbits just are
    just wrong.” Now, I’m sure he meant to write that I offered
    tidbits “that are just wrong,” and a good editor is hard to find,
    indeed. But as I contemplated Leff’s critique, two thoughts crossed
    my mind: 1) There’s no such thing as bad publicity; and 2) Hey, at
    least someone is reading with a critical eye. Thanks, Gary.

He’s right. The typo still exists in my post. I wrote it on the metro and make no excuses.

Elliott observes there’s no such thing as bad publicity. How about linking to my piece, bud? 😉
