Yesterday the hardworking staff unfairly piled on New York Times freelancer Bobby Allyn, who was the object of one of the paper’s corrections. (Sorry no link – we’re iPadlocked.)
In doing so, we violated rule number one of journalism mishaps: There but for the grace of God and etc.
For that we are truly sorry, and we sincerely apologize to Mr. Allyn.
And so we say to ourselves what J.J. Hunsecker said to the philandering U.S. Senator in Sweet Smell of Success (sorry no link – we’re and etc.):
Go thou and sin no more.
