Warm, fuzzy feelings

I am so pleased to have found Regret the Error, which "reports on corrections, retractions, clarifications and trends regarding accuracy and honesty in the media."

In yesterday's post on a retraction by Austin American-Statesman:

In a box accompanying a Friday front page story about Gary Gibbs' sentence for his 8th drunk driving conviction, the word "board" in Gibbs' statement was incorrectly substituted for the word "Lord". The correct sentence was: "The Lord has allowed me not only to continue in my studies but also to reach people who are hurting, lonely, lost and needing spiritual guidance."

It also prints its own regrets. How marvelous!
