The newspaper of record

From the New York Times:
Correction: September 22, 2009
A picture caption on Sunday with an article about the garbage crisis in Cairo, caused by the Egyptian government’s misguided campaign last spring to eradicate swine flu by killing all the pigs — once the city’s champion garbage consumers — misidentified the animals shown sampling Cairo street refuse with less gusto than the pigs. They were fat-tailed sheep, not goats.

I've written to the Washington Post in the past because they misidentified an animal and never seen a correction. It's nice that someone cares.
