The Times of London is not infallible

Today’s Sentence of the Day is actually a cheat. It’s three. But it’s the first sentence that grabs your attention. The other two are just a bonus. They come from a correction in the Times of London.

“Karol Wojtyla was referred to in Saturday’s Credo column as “the first non-Catholic pope for 450 years.” This should, of course, have read “non-Italian. We apologize foe the error.”

Cruxnow has a good take.

Every day, The Southpaw finds a sentence that makes him think or laugh. It can come from a song, a poem, a book, a newspaper article. It’s a daily celebration of our odd – and yet beautiful – language.
