The Washington Post

Curb your enthusiasm for malapropis­ms


The Dec. 30 news article “Tributes pour in, revealing a soft spot for a mentor who was a ‘fighter,’ ” about the late former senator Harry M. Reid (D-nev.), said Reid was “even ahead of the curb when he criticized the former name of the Washington Football Team in 2014.” Ahead of the curb? Really? Was he on the sidewalk?

Reid was ahead of the curve.
