Sometimes I think I let things hurt me more than I should’ve because they weren’t worth my time or energy.
Earlier, I wrote an email to Alessandra Stanley and the main editorial email (because hey, why not) and received this response:
I’m overusing the word trifling today, but…Thanks for your email. After consulting with the Arts & Leisure desk, we have concluded that no correction is necessary here. Although Ms. Beharie is indeed the female lead and has appeared in the same number of episodes as Tom Mison, her Lt. Abbie Mills is not the star of the show in the same way the Mr. Mison’s Ichabod is. At any rate, we reserve formal corrections for provable factual inaccuracies; something as subjective as the designation of “sidekick” does not rise to the level that would warrant a correction, I’m afraid.Nonetheless, please be assured that we have taken your suggestion under serious consideration. Thank you very much for taking the time to get in touch.Sincerely,Louis Lucero IIAssistant to the Senior Editor for StandardsThe New York TimesExcuse?
