Tom’s Idea Of A Correction

See update post above (Sat. 10:30 a.m.)

Check this out:

This is how the first paragraph of Tom’s post read yesterday: “I read over at Lakeland Local that the downtown merchants will try to use Gov. Charlie Crist’s appearance at a local political rally Thursday to ask the Guv why he likes CSX better than he likes Lakeland.”

This is how it reads now: “I hear that some folks are being urged by someone with ties to the downtown business interests to use Gov. Charlie Crist’s appearance at a local political rally Thursday to ask the Guv why he likes CSX better than he likes Lakeland. That will liven up the event.”

No explanation to readers. No acknowledgment he misrepresented what I wrote. This is a small thing. But I have asked for a correction from Tom and his editors because I don’t like people attributing things to me I did not write. This appears to be the correction. The Ledger I used to work for would never have tolerated this.
