Here's a Switch

How many of you, faithful reader, have come across people who use flaunt for flout? If you need reminding, google he flaunted the law, and you'll see what I mean.

Well, in today's Nyok Times, Janet Maslin does the reverse:

“The Army of the Republic” is a high-strung, hyperbolic novel about American rebels fighting their own government, tackling a political hierarchy that flouts its contempt for democracy.

Janet's editor must have told her, "Kid, I don't never wanna see you write flaunt! Dammit, the word is flout! Ya read me?" It would certainly be fun to befriend a woman as complaisant as Janet seems to be.
