Washington Post obit makes mistake about famous JFK Jr. photo:

The March 3 obituary for former United Press International photographer Stan Stearns erred in describing him as the only newsman to capture an image of John F. Kennedy Jr. saluting his father's coffin on Nov. 25, 1963. At least one other, Dan Farrell of the New York Daily News, took a picture of the salute. Farrell's image was distributed worldwide by the Associated Press.
