Typo outrage …

… Cli-Fi.Net -- (the world's largest online 'Cli-Fi' portal for Cli-Fi, a subgenre of sci-fi): A tale of two newspaper styles: The New York Times lowercases the word "earth" when it should be "Earth," while the Taipei Times does capitalize the word "Earth" in the same exact article from the NYT wire service. WTF? ''BOO'' NYT! ''BRAVO'' Taipei Times!

Well, when referred to as a planet, it is uppercase, like Neptune. When referring to compost, it's lowercase. I don't myself get all sentimental about it as my "home," but I don't tend to get all sentimental about anything.
