pursuit of Road Runner, 211, 213–15, 216n

Speaking of cartoons, a raft of corrections to be implemented for a book this week included a passing mention of Wile E. Coyote, which had been misspelled as "Wily E. Coyote" in the first printing. This also had to be fixed in the index; I think it's amusing that Wile E. Coyote appeared in the index in the first place, but even more so that the entry read

Coyote, Wile E. (cartoon character), 210

That, folks, is how you tell if something's a scholarly book. Though to be really comprehensive the entry should have included a genus & species name too.
