A Broadsheet correction

In which we accuse the wrong person of having a foul mouth.

Usually I would make a correction like this in the original item or note it in letters, but because nearly two days have passed since my error, I decided to write it up separately.

In this space on Tuesday, in an item about White House press corps reporter Helen Thomas' showdown with Bush press secretary Scott McClellan, I credited Jessica at Feministing with eloquently observing, "Helen Thomas Rocks My Fucking World." In fact, Jessica did not write the headline. Helen Thomas rocks Ann at Feministing's fucking world.
