Correction: Muslims, Jews Worship Same God

Here’s a great correction from Sunday’s New York Times:

A headline last Sunday about a Muslim man and an Orthodox Jewish woman who are partners in two Dunkin’ Donuts stores described their religions incorrectly. The two faiths worship the same God — not different ones.

Hat tip: Andrew Sullivan.

As an industrious collector of amusing newspaper clips, I can top this one for Jewish-themed hilarity. The following correction ran in the Times during the 2000 presidential campaign:

An article yesterday about a visit by Vice President Al Gore and Senator Joseph I. Lieberman to a Jewish community center in Florida misattributed a Yiddish greeting. It was Mr. Lieberman, not Mr. Gore, who said, “Shalom aleichem”; Mr. Gore said, “Mazel tov.”

No joke.
