Calling Captain Kurk

From an LA Weekly essay on Star Trek movies:

Responding to complaints from critics and Trekkies alike about The Motion Picture's brainy tone and lavish cost, the producers mapped out a leaner sequel, in the process confronting the dilemma of how to make wham-bang sci-fi movies on a miniscule budget, with actors entering their fifties.

Yep, even in print we're now seeing "minuscule" spelled with a second I. I predict in fifty year "miniscule" will become the favored spelling.

The "mini" part of "miniscule" seems to make more sense.
