retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Yesterday, in my FaceTime video, I said that a cover from The New Yorker from 1982 appeared 21 years before the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Clearly, I got my math wrong.  It was 19 years.

Thanks to all the MNB readers who pointed this out.  In my defense, I should point out that I have been recently diagnosed (not by a medical professional,  but rather by the two women who live in my house) as having Dyscalculia, which is defined as "a disability resulting in difficulty learning or comprehending arithmetic, such as difficulty in understanding numbers, learning how to manipulate numbers, performing mathematical calculations and learning facts in mathematics."

It may be an amateur diagnosis, but that pretty much describes me.

So, apologies for the mathematical mis-computation.
