Direct From The Prestigious Internet

This week's issue of Stranger has a very entertaining pullout section dedicated to its Year in Corrections, ranging from "The Stranger regrets our multiple incorrect renderings of the band name Clap Your Hands Say Yeah this year" to the immortal "Stranger critic Charles Mudede regrets writing a positive review of Happy Endings in the July 14 issue, as Happy Endings was a bad movie. Have we mentioned Mr. Mudede drinks?"

Speaking of which, the corrections-o-rama site Regret The Error noticed a whopping one this week in the LA Times:

An article in Tuesday's Section A about tensions over the federal effort to reintroduce wolves into parts of the West wrongly attributed to Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal a statement that Wyoming considered the Endangered Species Act no longer in force and "now considers the wolf as a federal dog." The statement, which was circulated on the Internet, was purportedly from Freudenthal but was in fact a hoax.

Yup: an internet hoax was the source of a front page quote...
