The ever-'proper' New York Times makes a whopper of a correction
Kosher food expert Gil Marks z"l passed away this week as a result of lung cancer (no, he was not a smoker). The New York Times had an obituary here. Read the whole thing to find the 'correction' the Times made to its article (HatTip: Mrs. Carl).
I am an Orthodox Jew - some would even call me 'ultra-Orthodox.' Born in Boston, I was a corporate and securities attorney in New York City for seven years before making aliya to Israel in 1991 (I don't look it but I really am that old :-). I have been happily married to the same woman for thirty-five years, and we have eight children (bli ayin hara) ranging in age from 12 to 33 years and eight grandchildren. Three of our children are married and a fourth is engaged! Before I started blogging I was a heavy contributor on a number of email lists and ran an email list called the Matzav from 2000-2004.
