The Wall Street Journal fails ‘Monsters of Greek Mythology 101′

Someone at the Wall Street Journal can’t tell a Minotaur from a Cyclopes. As a result, the paper published a monstrous correction this week:

The Minotaur is a monster in Greek mythology that is part bull, part human. A travel article in Saturday’s Off Duty section mistakenly called it a one-eyed monster.

    I think this is most unfair to the Wall Street Journal. Surely it is obvious that the minotaur had an eye, so the Journal’s editorial page was as accurate as ever.

    The fact that the minotaur had another eye in no respect changes the steady record of that editorial page.
