The 12th of what? Today is only the 10th. Looks to me like it was published July 5, 2011.
You are absolutely correct and I sit here with pink cheeks on fire with embarrassment, and egg on the way to apply to the face. I think I have experienced a senior moment of clinical proportion. Haven’t a clue how I deduced 2012 from a 2011 column. Don’t even ask about the imaginary 12th of never. Very sorry.
