NYT corrects: 'She is a performer from the show, not a drag queen from the show'

An excellent correction rides below Michael Powell's Oct. 8 column about the San Francisco Giants:

An earlier version of this column, using information from the San Francisco Giants, described incorrectly the cast member of “Beach Blanket Babylon” who sang “God Bless America” at Tuesday’s game while wearing a giant hat depicting the San Francisco skyline. She is a performer from the show, not a drag queen from the show.

Even at this early hour, this correction has competition. A correction in The Wall Street Journal Wednesday proves that journalists just cannot catch a break when it comes to math.

The Golden Beach, Fla., home bought in late September by construction executive Ronald Tutor has seven full bathrooms and two half-baths, according to Scott Hochberg, who represented his father, videogame developer Joel Hochberg, in the sale of the home and is with Keller Williams Realty in Fort Lauderdale. A Mansion article on Friday incorrectly gave the number of full bathrooms as eight.
