I confuse Walter Russell Mead and Walter Reed.
Connomming: Walter Edition
Has the term connomming caught on yet? No? Well, I’m still doing it. The latest:
- Walter Russell Mead is an American academic who writes on American political issues (typically concerning foreign policy); and
- Walter Reed was a U.S. army physician in the 19th Century, most famous today as the namesake of Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
This one came to my attention after coming across Mead’s 2012 article about the history of racial compromise in U.S. politics. ✺
