A round-up of what's going on at BestLatin.net

Actually it should be "Iesus", not "Jesus" :)
I think since they were writing the article in English, they wanted to make it clear to English readers what exactly had happened. They could have written IESUS but for English readers, that would have just made things more confusing. I'm sure they will get the Latin right on the medallion this time. :-)
The best part of this debacle was CNN's article on it, where they had incorrectly transcribed the Latin. While noting the Vatican's spelling error, their version had several more errors.
