Corrections of the Year

Craig Silverman's Regret the Error has compiled a list of notable corrections for 2009.

Some favorites (aside from the 9/11-911 snafu):

A photo caption on Tuesday’s Page A8 said a student was performing the Heimlich maneuver on a dummy. The student was actually playing around and pretending to choke the dummy.

Bear sighting: An item in the National Briefing in Sunday’s Section A said a bear wandered into a grocery story in Hayward, Wis., on Friday and headed for the beer cooler. It was Thursday.
