The Judge I mentioned yesterday sends a note to Shapiro apologizing for the confusion,and says he will also send a note to Shapiro (thinking he’s Somin). Then the Judge apologizes to Shapiro for not catching up with him at George Mason recently (also thinking he’s Somin).
Also a journal emails Somin asking him to review edits on an article. Shapiro wrote the article. Thankfully the editor didn’t make a change to the author note (which correctly said Shapiro).
