I beg your pardon

Editor, Index-Tribune:

I admire your eloquent endorsement of good causes, your use of logic, your positive influence on our community.  But here I am again with words about words: in your Feb. 14 editorial, you wrote, “begs the question” where it appears you mean, “raises the question.”  To beg the question is to assume a statement is true without evidence other than the statement itself. And in the Tuesday edition, the phrase was used, “left in a lurch.” The correct phrase is, “left in the lurch.”
