    Mt. Dem: If it's not too late, RECANTED is totally the wrong word. Please don't go to print with it.

    R.J.: The strange thing is that several days ago the editor (or someone) DID make the correction. But now they're back to having Mr. Peabody recanting. Gremlins!

    RECANT = to formally and publicly withdraw or repudiate (a statement or belief). Mr. Peabody has NOT recanted his experiences as a young marine.
