News & Observer offers amusing correction to incorrect band name

The Raleigh News & Observer offers an amusing correction after citing an incorrect band name in an editorial:

Please don’t drum us out of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club. Not that we don’t deserve it. Yesterday, in an editorial about the international bluegrass convention coming to Raleigh, we referenced a group that oft appeared with Andy, the Dillards. They were known on the show as the Darling family. Alas, a typo in the editorial turned Dillards into Dullards. If anything, their music was more on the level of genius. We humbly apologize.
