An article on Monday about Jack Robison and Kirsten Lindsmith, two college students with Asperger syndrome who are navigating the perils of an intimate relationship, misidentified the character from the animated children’s TV show ”My Little Pony” that Ms. Lindsmith said she visualized to cheer herself up. It is Twilight Sparkle, the nerdy intellectual, not Fluttershy, the kind animal lover.

    THE PUBLIC EDITOR: Thoughts From Jill Abramson, Executive Editor
    By ARTHUR S. BRISBANE Published: September 10, 2011

    I would have Winerip and Brisbane work together as NYT Executive Editors. 

    Winerip’s education reporting is the best in America.

    Brisbane has a good intellect.

    NYT editorials/letters/op-eds do not cut it.

    I would establish Tiger Mom on higher education and James Gleick on information as two of the lead columnists. 

    The NYT is a classic Janus-faced organization, just as Pearson Education is. 

    The NYT has the best education reporter, and the worst blog–The Choice– to disgrace the site of an American paper.

    You can’t have it both ways.
