YEAR IN, YEAR OUT

If I understand (reviewer) Thomas Cahill correctly ("Century's End," Book Review, March 4), neither he nor (author) Hillel Schwartz has chosen the right year to end this century.

The year 2000 is the last year of this century.

The century goes from 1 to 100; hence the 21st Century begins in 2001
