    Note that Minnesota was left out of this, putting the Grey Lady in the unenviable position of needing to correct their correction. As far as I’m concerned, #grapegate remains officially and bafflingly unresolved.

    Harrumph! Where was the outrage from the DE Twitter users when the New York Times made such egregious errors regarding the du Pont family? That’s the real controversy. #familygate
