Great corrections of our time
Today's Guardian lists a number of corrections to its week-long series of Worldfactfile booklets. This is the best: "The verses of some national anthems were inadvertently pasted into the page of templates of other countries. Thus stretching global fraternity and sorority, the people of Brunei were held to sing - on the website, though not on the printed page - of their willingness to fight for Albania. The Solomon Islands were found singing of freedom from slavery in words that actually belong to Belize."
