Correction of the Day

Doesn't get much wackier than this.  Fort-Worth Star Telegram IDed female reporter Yang Wang as "Yank Wang"  and at the top of front page of a section.  To make it worse, she is reporter from another paper whose work they share.  Correction by paper does not mention what mistake was:  "Yang Wang is a staff writer for the Houston Chronicle.
