Correction cut-ups

L.A. Observed had a link to Regret the Error’s roundup of huge errors and corrections this year. Their pick for the best correction of the year:

Ladies and Gentleman, the Correction of the Year for 2005, as published in the Denver Daily News on July 27:

The Denver Daily News would like to offer a sincere apology for a typo in Wednesday’s Town Talk regarding New Jersey’s proposal to ban smoking in automobiles. It was not the author’s intention to call New Jersey ‘Jew Jersey.’

Ohmygoodness…..I almost didn’t know how to react.

Anyway, I’ve added Regret the Error to the sites I subscribe to. I do love to read about funny slip-ups, and I usually get my fix from the American Journalism Review‘s Take 2.
