WOULDN’T IT BE SHORTER IF YOU SAID WHAT YOU GOT RIGHT?

Our local Dog Trainer today prints this rather elaborate correction.

UPDATE: The correction reads as follows:

Transit agencies — A chart accompanying a California section story on Wednesday about executive pay at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and other transit agencies included several errors. The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority was misidentified as the Santa Clarita Valley Transportation Authority, and due to a rounding error its weekday bus and light rail boardings were reported as 187,000 instead of 188,000.

In addition, as of 2001, the last full year of statistics reported to the Federal Transit Administration, the Chicago Transit Authority had 1.6 million weekday boardings, not 1.5 million; AC Transit (in Alameda and Contra Costa counties) had 240,000 weekday boardings, not 187,000; and the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus had 76,000 daily boardings, not 60,000. Also, New York City Transit was misidentified as New York Transit Authority. Finally, the top executive’s salary at San Diego Transit was reported as $162,750; more precisely, that salary applies to the general manager of the transit agency’s parent organization, San Diego’s Metropolitan Transportation Development Board.

That’s it?

JANICE ROGERS BROWN NEWS: Thomas

JANICE ROGERS BROWN NEWS: Thomas Sowell defends Brown in three separate columns. Here are Part I, Part II, and Part III.

If you’re not in the mood to be disgusted, don’t read this account of the confirmation hearings so far.

I am not optimistic. If someone as qualified as Miguel Estrada can be shot down by a campaign of lies — with no consequences for the liars — then there is little hope for Brown.
