NYT corrects: Joan Rivers did not die before she was born

The bottom of The New York Times' Sept. 4 obituary of Joan Rivers corrected the following error:

Correction: September 4, 2014
"An earlier version of a label that appeared with this obituary on the home page of NYTimes.com misstated the year of Ms. Rivers’s death. It was 2014, of course, not 1914."
