Wishful Thinking at the Times

From this morning’s New York Times Corrections section:

A picture with an entry in the National Briefing column on Thursday about an appeals court ruling upholding the murder conviction of Ernest Avants in the 1966 killing of a sharecropper, Ben Chester White, was published in error. It showed Peter H. Coors, who is seeking the Republican nomination for Senate in Colorado, not Mr. Avants.

Well, it’s an easy mistake to make. Convicted murderer, Republican Senate candidate–a fine distinction at the Times. Avants and Coors are pictured below.
