The management apologizes for a few small errors in yesterday's story. Accuracy is our watchword and we strive for complete compliance with the facts at all times. It is for that reason that it distresses us to admit that some small details were off.

It was a visit from a rare beetle that favored our town yesterday, and not a rare visit from one of the Beatles.

In any case it was definitely NOT George Harrison, as quite a number of perceptive readers have informed us that he is deceased.

Dr. McNally, the physician we quoted for the story is an entomologist, and not in fact a gynecologist, which admittedly would have made very little sense in any case.

Finally, while it is true that he demonstrated for us the proper way to determine the gender of the beetle, it is not the case that the police were subsequently summoned to quell the ensuing riot, as said riot was part of a completely erroneous extrapolation by our reporter based on his judgment of the probably consequences of the situation as he understood (or rather misunderstood) it to be.

We assure the public the reporter in question has been reacquainted with proper journalistic technique. We further assure you that all additional details of the story are correct in every particular, and that no repeat of this unfortunately incident is to be expected at any point in the future.

Hey there, kitoba! Do you remember what the title of this thread was supposed to have been? dotwarner is going to beat me if I don't put things back to what they were.
