The L.A. Times ran this correction yesterday (thanks to Bradley J. Fikes):
Boyle Heights police station: A caption in Sunday’s California section, accompanying a photo and article about the opening of a Boyle Heights police station, misidentified Explorer Scouts in the photo as L.A. police officers.
That’s one error corrected, and only two more to go.
Apparently they still believe that the area covered by the new Hollenbeck station is a circle with a diameter of over 30 miles, because they didn’t correct that part.
Nor do I see a correction of the story where they claimed water weighs less than half of what it actually does.
Hey, 1 for 3 ain’t bad, I guess would be the editors’ logic. In the major leagues, .333 gets you a nice contract.
Of course, this paper really isn’t in the major leagues any more.
P.S. Someone contacted me privately and complained that I was nitpicking when I pointed out this error. Perhaps, but I think the editors of the local paper need to know what the local police agency’s uniform looks like. Seriously: they do.
