I had a major ah-ha moment recently, followed shortly by a well, duh moment.
I knew the much beloved author of Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan was E.B. White.
I also knew that one of the authors of every writer's bible, The Elements of Style, was a man named White.
What I didn't know is ... wait for it ... THEY ARE THE SAME GUY!
And now you know too.
I am sure that you are just as devoted to the "Strunk and White" as all of us in the newsroom here are. We have had several copies here, and I even keep one at home.
Somehow, knowing that the author of that trusted but orderly book was also the author of a book about a talking pig makes me like him even more.
