The Economist with a lovely correction to a mistaken claim about its own coverage of the legalization of drugs:

In a leader last month (Of bongs and bureaucrats, January 11th) we said that The Economist first proposed legalising drugs in 1993. In fact we argued for it in a cover story in 1988. Who says drug use doesn’t damage long-term memory?

Hat tip to Emily Babay.
