I misspelled the name of our new president! In two previous posts Barack was spelled Barak. My sister-in-law who writes a news column for a local paper caught the mistake and emailed me to quickly correct the spelling before anyone else saw it. The funny thing is in one entry I had it spelled both ways. She tried to excuse my mistake by telling me the Biblical spelling of the name was Barak. (Judges 4 & 5, and Hebrews 11) Now I am mortified that the letters I sent to the White House on the day after the inauguration also had our president's name misspelled. No wonder we have not received any response, not even a form letter!
