We write our own corrections for the Oops! Section of WAG, being careful not to repeat the mistake. But we couldn’t resist this gently witty note from former Congressman Richard L. Ottinger to Wagger Frank Pagani, who profiled him in May’s “Passion Flowers” issue http://www.wagmag.com/richardottinger/ :
“Two errors that I feel obliged to communicate. They probably were my own. At any rate, I was not a pilot in the U.S. Air Force. I flew a desk. And I am dean emeritus at Pace (Law School) not professor emeritus. I can write a correction as a comment, but I thought you might prefer to do it. Please let me know.”
Dean Emeritus Ottinger, we couldn’t have said it any better ourselves.
