New York Times makes a slight boo-boo
  • They ran this correction: : "A front-page article on Thursday about strain on government services in Texas caused by hurricane evacuees misstated the number of evacuee children in Houston public schools and the amount of Federal aid the state has received. The most recent count, in late February, showed 5,475 students, not 30,000. The aid is $222 million, not $22 million."
  • The Times reported that the feds had contributed $733 per student. The correct amount was $40,548 per student, which is, oh, about 5000% higher!

  • If I'm not mistaken, this is a clip from an obscure TV show called The Lively Ones, which was basically one long "swingin'" car commercial for Ford products. "If you wanna ride, get some wheels, but if you wanna swing - get a Ford."
