From the Miami Herald corrections department

Sloppy copy editing over the weekend resulted in the Miami Herald besmirching a deceased crime victim.
Due to a copy-editing error, a story on Page 1A Saturday about a free-speech suit against the Miami-Dade state attorney incorrectly stated that teenager Leonardo Barquin fired a gun. Barquin was shot twice and collapsed before he bled to death.
Hat tip: Regret the Error

And what say you Marxist Bastards about channeling for Fidel Castro in your stinking paper?

Keep cutting copy editors. Let's get this death watch over.

So this is what this site has been reduced to? Pointing out corrections?

I'll say it again: That's what happens when the entire Universal Desk is laid off. Look for more of the same.

Voting for a teleprompter has narrowed your mind. HopeyChangey, hold that thought.
