a democracy in Iraq is quite unlikely for now or any time soon

Hello Baruch,

Do you think some companies are prone to have more closet Spinozists than others? I do, and I think Apple is one of them. It looks like one of their programmers was compelled to inject some “adequate knowledge” into Mac OS X’s default dictionary application:

a democracy in Iraq is quite unlikely for now or any time soon

A blog investigated the provenance of that line. It sure wasn’t put there by Oxford University Press, says a flack there, suggesting instead that somebody at Apple did so.
