Totally sticking up for the right to be a jerk about punctuation even while writing only occasionally pretty good sentences

No need to care. To me point isn’t so much the date (though as a journo I think it’s important to get facts right!) as the excitement of discovery, how we know what we know, and the window these previously hard to access newspapers open onto the world Hughes was born into

Me neither! Hughes owned & treasured a bullet-hole-riddled shawl allegedly worn by the man. His grandma, who raised him, used to cover him with it at night.

There’s a lot in this short piece: Langston Hughes’ birth year, yes, but also why the mistake was made, how newspapers are important in all kinds of ways, & even the origin-story line from Harper’s Ferry to Lawrence KS for this NYC literary icon. Thx &
