Everybody must get ... wait, what?

Rough night on the culture desk at the Nation's Newspaper of Record:

A Critic’s Notebook article on Tuesday about the Newport Folk Festival, which paid tribute to Bob Dylan’s famous performance with an electric guitar there 50 years ago, misstated part of the title of a Dylan song that was played. It is “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35,” not “#12 and 25.” The article also misstated part of a lyric from the Dylan song “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue,” which was also performed. It is, “Forget the dead you’ve left, they will not follow you,” not “Forget the debt you left, they will not follow you.” The article also misstated the title of a song James Taylor sang. It is “Carolina in My Mind,” not “Carolina on My Mind.”

On my mind I'm going to ... Look! Up in the sky!

An obituary on Tuesday about A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, India’s 11th president, referred incorrectly to the Supermarine Spitfire, a British fighter plane that he read about as a child. It was a propeller aircraft, not a jet.

Given all this, is it time to place a new order for those "Don't Trust Anyone Under 60" T-shirts?
