Correction of the Day

From the Guardian:
An interview with the actor Laura Linney referred to her latest film role as Daisy, the real-life distant cousin of Franklin D Roosevelt, and quoted her as saying that Daisy used to store the knick-knacks FDR brought back from around the world in a latrine. Not quite. That was a mishearing on the part of the interviewer. Daisy stored the knick-knacks in a vitrine – a glass display case.
