Inter

ImageTo bury or entomb, usually a dead body.

Yeah, that's what I thought the word was. But in Michael Ledeen's June 12th (what time zone is he in, anyway? my watch says it's only the eleventh) opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal, «Iran's Revolution Has Only Just Begun,» he writes,

Leaders called for a massive turnout to celebrate the Islamic Republic, and they bragged that millions of supporters would come to the Tehran cemetery where Khomeini's remains are interned. 

I understand that being an unpaid intern may sometimes feel like being locked in a tomb, but it is my hope that Mr Ledeen is so long from having had to intern that any such memories are no longer affecting his choice of words.

My guess is that this will be corrected before the deadtree edition of tomorrow's Journal goes to press.
