Weinberg makes a monkey of Cambridge professor…
Consider the gauntlet thrown, Cambridge. In his new Cosmology text, Steven Weinberg twice misspelled the name of DAMTP professor Gary Gibbons as “Gary Gibbon,” effectively making a monkey of the accomplished general relativist.
Innocent typo, or the latest manifestation of the deterioration of trans-Atlantic relations?
Ok, ok. I guess I’m just getting reacquainted to the yellow journalism of certain American TV stations. Maybe Weinberg was just confused with the previous Ubunu Linux release, Gutsy Gibbon?
