Quel dork!

Michael Barrett from Shadow Lake Village wrote to me off list to suggest that 
maybe the software auto corrected changing consensus to nonsense. 

Of course that’s it!

I use Siri voice to text a great deal. One of the things for which she is 
notorious is spelling something correctly, thinking about it, erasing it and 
replacing it with a mistake. Too wit:  Kaitlyn’s name.  Siri really did spell 
it correctly first time but in the time between finishing my email and hitting 
the send button she misspelled it as: Caitlin.  So I have a personal example in 
my very email of how AutoCorrect can confound anyone.
