What Happens When You Fire All Your Copy Editors

From the corrections column in this morning’s New York Times Book Review:

The Long View column on March 18 misstated the circumstances surrounding the Trojan horse in Greek legend. It was the Trojans who allowed the horse within the gates; it was not the Greeks, whose soldiers were inside the horse.

And if you click through to the original article and look at the version of the correction that appears there, you’ll see that they’re trying to rename it “the Greek horse.”  Good luck with that, guys.
