All the News That's Fit to Botch

The New York Times, which likes to think of itself as the US's leading newspaper (and, sadly, probably is, which says a lot about the state of journalism) doesn't seem to know what Easter is.

They ran a story about the new pope's first Easter address. Which indicates that they have tumbled to the fact that this Easter thing is something important. But they have it confused with Ascension Thursday (of which I am willing to bet they have never heard).

Read the correction at the bottom of this page:

An earlier version of this article mischaracterized the Christian holiday of Easter. It is the celebration of Jesus’s resurrection from the dead, not his resurrection into heaven.

Well, actually 'resurrection into heaven' still isn't right, but at least they're getting close.
