Stop the Presses! Daily gaffes
. w. lw w- -W
This year, the Daily made AB-
SOLUTELY NO MISTAKES. Un-
derstand? We were flawless. There
were no typos, no style errors, no
misquotes and misrepresentations,
no layout problems, no misleading
headlines, no identical stories on the
front page, no staff members getting
arrested, and not a single biased
story. SO STOP COMPLAINING.
Only the New York Times makes
mistakes, NOT the Daily.
However, if we WERE to make
Some of these were written

by Jim Poniewozik, neither of
whom ever make mistakes.

A photo caption last Thursday
identified two men at the parking lot
of "Crysler" Arena, waiting for the
"Greatful" Dead concert. The mis-
spellings were caught and corrected
in a caption the next day - to
"Chrysler" and "Greatfull." Accord-
ing to the caption, the photo was of
Dead singer.. um... "Jimmy" Garcia.

Any of you hockey fans try call-
ing our brand-new "Hockey Hotline"
earlier this term? Actually, that was
the brainchild of Sports Editor Mike
Gill, who listed the regular Daily
Sports phone number for the hot-
line. But he forgot to warn the rest
of us, most of whom don't know a
hockey puck from a floppy disk.
Did I hear a harp?
On Dr. Martin Luther King's
birthday, the Daily reported that the
School of Music would host a lec-
ture/recital by conductor Eva Jessye
and University Prof. Undiwe Smith
Moore in honor of King. Although
Moore did pay tribute to Jessye,
Jessye was unable to attend, as she
is currently deceased.
The dream of milk
Four Daily photographers -
KarenHandelman, Dave Lubliner,
Scott Lituchy, and John Munson -
won a very prestigious Columbia
Gold Circle Award for their photo
feature on students celebrating Dr.
Martin Luther King's Birthday. Ac-
cording to the award list sent by
Columbia, their feature was called,
"Milk Day: Honoring the Dream."

A correction last month read,

Who's that again?
Again in Weekend Magazine last
term, our story on deputization ex-
posed Assistant Director of Safety
Robert Pifer because of his past
training with the FBI. We pointed
him out in a photo by circling his
head. Only one thing - that wasn't
his head. In fact, Pifer's head wasn't
even in the photo. In fact, we have
absolutely no idea whose head it
was. Perhaps it belonged to the go-
Stop me before I draw
Late last month, the Daily ran a
letter to the editor castigating a
Michigan Delay cartoon as "often
sore and degrading." The letter was
written by David Kalat, who, as it
turned out, drew the cartoon.

On April 4, the Daily ran a letter
to the editor by a reader responding
to a letter. The headline read, "Reader
responds to letter."
Nice shot, Sean
Remember when Michigan bas-
ketball guard Sean Higgins sent us
to the championship game by pop-
ping in a shot at the buzzer against
Illinois? If you saw the Daily last
week, you may have a somewhat
distorted memory of it. You see, the
ball wouldn't fit in our photograph,
so we sort of, well... moved it. In
fact, in our photo the ball was head-
ing straight for the front of the rim.
Next time, forget the basketball
team. Leave the championship to the
Seventh Annual Reader Poll
It's all over. You can stop
holding your breath. The

Some past winners kept on winning,
but there were also some upstart

BURGER Krazy Jim's
Blimpy- Burger (551 S.
Quality grease - and a whole
helluva lot of toppings. Even if
you're not into the red meat thing,
try the Ultimate Cheese sandwich.
With an egg, five cheeses, and pep-
pers, it tastes better than it sounds.
But get there early, the line has been
known to run out the door at dinner-
PIZZA Cottage Inn (512 E.
The sesame seed crust adds that
extra bonus - plus, they're slicing
the Sicilian in a funky new diagonal
way so everyone gets some of the
crust! What more could a pizza-lover
POPCORN Stucchi's (302
Once thought of as the new kid
on the block, Stucchi's has taken
over as popcorn monarch, beating
out Tice's in a close race. What's
next for the local Italian giant?
HOT DOGS Red Hot
Lovers (629 E. University)
Still the best weiner in town! Try
'em with chili, mustard, ketchup,
sauerkraut, peppers, onions, relish,
etc. And their chili-cheese fries are
superb. When the weather gets nice,
snarf down the dogs outside.
BAGELS Bagel Factory
(1306 S. University)
Virtually the only store in Ann
Arbor to feature bagels, the Bagel
Factory ran away with it. And
nowhere in New York do they have
fragels like this.
