Wrong House

From today's Star Tribune, this doozy of a correction:

Newspaper correction notice saying they incorrectly said The House on the Rock was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It was designed by the unknown Alex Jordan

For those unfamiliar with the House on the Rock, saying that it was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is a bit like saying a Thomas Kincade paintings was done by DaVinci.

Yet another example of the Strib's loss of quality control. Or that their quality control is done by people not from the area... possibly as far away as India.

Wow. Those houses are worlds apart.

It's scary how lax things are getting! A friend says they must be using interns to write headlines and stories. Do they think we don't notice?

I think I hear Alex Jordan spinning furiously in his grave...
