What the Chronicle Correction Left Out

A correction published in last Monday's Houston Chronicle failed to tell the entire story.

It read: "A story in Sunday's Chronicle on the Tuesday inauguration of Gov. George W. Bush contained a typographical error in the Spanish translation of the ceremony's theme. The inauguration's theme is 'Together We Can -- Juntos Podemos.' "

What the Chronicle editors failed to tell readers was that the typo in the Sunday story read, "Juntos Pedemos," which loosely translated is "Together, Let Us Fart."

Considering the vapid speeches given by Bush and Lieutenant Governor Rick Perry on Tuesday, the Chron really wasn't that far off.
