Meanwhile, over at The Kraalspace...

...Dr. Mabuse has a post up that is as amusing as it is mortifying.  Here's a correction that her local paper ran yesterday:

A photograph on page D1 of yesterday's Citizen is not of Peter John Graham, who was convicted Tuesday of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl. The photograph is of Peter Reid Graham, who has never been charged with, or convicted of, any sexual assault. The Citizen apologizes unreservedly to Peter Reid Graham and his family for any distress caused by the erroneous publication of his photograph.

Can you imagine???  But it gets worse.  Per Dr. Mabuse:

But the online edition doesn't show you what the print edition has: under an apology for printing Mr. Graham's photograph, they thoughtfully print his photograph! So the Citizen has now TWICE published the photo of the man who DIDN'T do the crime, and we have not yet seen ONE photo of the man who DID.

I wish I were licensed to practice law in Canada.  That would be one fun lawsuit to file.
