9/11, 911 -- who doesn't get confused?

Everybody makes mistakes, and we've made enough of our own -- oh, confusing the Vatican astronomer with a Vatican astrologer comes to mind painfully, and the time a reporter mistakenly attributed those comments to Knight Ridder chief Tony Ridder in the middle of the Detroit newspaper strike, and ... but enough about us.

We just got up from the floor after reading a recent Washington Post correction forwarded to us by our former culture editor Sarah (Sparkly Devil) Klein:

A Nov. 26 article in the District edition of Local Living incorrectly said a Public Enemy song declared 9/11 a joke. The song refers to 911, the emergency phone number.
