The spelling used on the statue? Which statue? Not the statue at the Capitol.
Take a look, kids: this is the level of accuracy and honesty where Snoqueen lives and breathes. Orwell said that "for a creative writer possession of the 'truth' is less important than emotional sincerity" and that "there are occasions when an 'untrue' belief is more likely to be sincerely held than a 'true' one."
Snoqueen is one such "creative writer". Her beliefs are sincerely held, her emotional sincerity is deeply sincere.
And she is deeply and absolutely mistaken.
I've lived in Madison for all my 50+ years. I have looked at that statue. Sno is mistaken by one letter. It's Heg with one g. Oh the horror!
