Not the Craw, the Craw!

From today’s New York Times corrections:

An entry on the hardcover best-seller list on Page 34 of the Book Review today, for “The Greatest Story Ever Sold,” by Frank Rich, omitted part of the name of the publishing imprint. It is Penguin Press, not Penguin.

Don’t you feel better now?

    This may be a world record for smallest nit to pick, but:No “the”! It’s “Not Craw, Craw!”(Aside – would such crude ethnic speech jokes show up on TV today?)

    Left uncorrected, as far as I can tell, is this headline from yesterday’s sports section: “Yankees Are Held To 5 Hits; Strand 18 Base Runners”Now I missed the game (more’s the pity), so the headline left me wondering–“wow, 18 baserunners and just five hits? That’s one heck of a lot of walks!” Of course, as the story correctly explains, the Yankees “went 0 for 18 with runners on base.” Which isn’t the same thing at all.

    Lucky, I guess, that Penguin’s lawyers didn’t force NYT to include their entire blurb in the correction, part of which reads, “Dedicated to publishing literary nonfiction and select fiction, it’s [sic] distinguished roster of authors include … Alan Greenspan, Mark Helprin, … Thomas Pynchon, … Carlos Ruiz Zafón, and many other award-winning and best-selling writers.”Penguin seems to have a surplus of lawyers and a shortage of copy editors.Leslie
