Craig Silverman‘s excellent blog dedicated to newspaper corrections, Regret the Error, has just posted its feature on the corrections of the year. The one below only earned runner-up status for Silverman, but it’s a winner in my book:

The Sentinel-Review (Woodstock, Ontario):

In an article in Monday’s newspaper, there may have been a misperception about why a Woodstock man is going to Afghanistan on a voluntary mission. Kevin DeClark is going to Afghanistan to gain life experience to become a police officer when he returns, not to shoot guns and blow things up.
The Sentinel-Review apologizes for any embarrassment this may have caused.
