    While it's hard for readers to check, without knowing the case name or number, I hope the Law Journal will correct the reference to a "lynchpin."
    The word "linchpin" has a long and evocative history, but has nothing to do with lynchings.

    If the FTC actually did use the non-existent yet somewhat horrifying word "lynchpin," then I suppose the Law Journal could be forgiven; but I hope you'll make sure - and even if the FTC was indeed wrong, I hope you'll reconsider following suit.
