Burning Ambition

One day I'm going to write a short story that's so good the New Yorker will have to publish it. Its plot will crucially hinge on the difference between "ensure" and "insure".

(A few years ago I had a lover who claimed to be able to reliably tell the difference between a David Denby review and an Anthony Lane review just by reading the review's first sentence. An impressive skill, for sure).
