In a post entitled Carney Delenda Est, the normally excellent political reporter David Weigal has made maybe the gravest mistake of his career. He has forgotten that the gerundive in a passive peraphrastic has to agree with the noun it modifies in case, number, and gender, and so made a hash of his title. Carney is a man; it should be Carney Delendus Est.
I am not saying this one mistake invalidates a years-long career in journalism, only that it should.
