Let us begin the New Year with Frank Lloyd Wright.
Last week I visited his fascinating “Kentuck Knob” house in southwestern Pennsylvania.
The (very good) tour guide, as we entered the residence, pointed out the bronze plaque affixed to the outer wall adjacent to the front door.
“The house has received a National Historic distinction,” she said.
Actually, I think she meant that the house has received a National Historic designation.
You receive a designation because you have some kind of distinction.
Or will I have the distinction of being wrong on the very first day of the year?
