This type of rolling revision is also possible with other sections, of course. And one such case happened Friday night with theappreciation of Kansas City Lyric Opera founder Russell Patterson
that appeared in print Saturday.
An early version of the story had two first names wrong. The errors were caught when a family member saw the online version and called in to the newsroom.
The fix was made after some copied had already been printed, though most papers were right. Do you still run a correction?
Here I say yes, and The Star’s managing editor agreed. Tomorrow, a note on A2 will note that in some editions, there were two mistakes. Better to over-correct than under-.
